Since I was a young boy I have been intrigued by the beautiful lights and sheer size of the Process Industry here in The Netherlands. Fast forward some time, and after finishing High school with a focus on Science & Technologies, I began my journey in order to become the Engineer I’m today.

In 2013, I started as a freshman at the Chemical Engineering department at the Rotterdam Mainport University. With many ups and downs, failures and successes and most important: friendships, I graduated as a Chemical Engineer after successfully finishing my graduation internship at ADM Europoort.

In the past years, I've carried out assignments for companies such as Evides Industriewater, STC Brielle & STC Rotterdam and I’m currently working as a Maintenance Engineer Automation at VOPAK Europoort.

Since the start of this journey, I’ve reached huge milestones in my Engineering skills, Leadership skills and Business knowledge and in 2021 my wish finally came true to be able to combine this with the thing I love: Computer Sciences.
