I'm a Data & ML Software Engineer
I develop Scala and Python software that runs on a Spark cluster or dockerize functional scala microservices to run on a Kubernetes cluster.
I'm proficient with many tools concerning setting up a big data ingestion & processing pipeline in the cloud and deploying the results via a scalable API.
I'm also skilled in cleaning & analyzing huge amounts of data, followed by training, validating & testing machine learning models and deploying them in production.

Apart from being a software engineer, I organize a regular meetup for data enthousiasts in Rotterdam and surroundings, called Data Driven Rijnmond
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife, daughter and son. I run, swim, play tennis and golf and get in shape via a personal trainer. I also hold 1st dan (shodan) in Aikido.
I love puzzles and attempt to escape from about 4-5 escape rooms every year.
When forced in doors I like to read, and watch Youtube (My favorite channels: PBS Space Time, Mark Rober, Numberphile, SmarterEveryDay, 3Blue1Brown, standupmaths, minutephysics, CPG Grey, Kurzgesagt, Veritasium, Critical Role, Simone Giertz). I also play board games or catch up on some movies / series
