General Skills I am outspokenly a person with creative views, and I have by my years of experience an increasingly better view on what is realistically feasible and how to get there in clear steps.
I have a great interest for science and technology, including the newest developments. I also love languages, traveling, cultures and nature. I am also badminton player, playing this sport several times a week in a club.
I am a friendly person, though sometimes with outspoken ideas. I love humor and to relativate. I have experience in recruiting and leading a team of developers, although I don’t have a typical leader character. I am rather a reconciler of viewpoints. In a group, I reach my goals with diplomacy. I like more the content than the “show”. But I do like esthetics, for instance in the construction of programs or in user interfaces.
