In life I'm passionate about two things; Building great products and companies, that solve problems in a sweet way, and gathering communities: connecting likeminded people through events and online tools.
A combination of those two is what I'm currently working on fulltime: Crowded. Our mission is to make it easier for people to build great social online platforms.
I'm 22 years old and live in Amsterdam. I've been building projects since I was 14, and dropped out to gain more experience and love what I do.
