I am 62, born and raised in Maastricht/NL. I live and work in The Hague. I studied Theology in Frankfurt/Main and Information Technology in Potsdam. I worked in libraries and since 1996 as a functional application manager (IT), starting in Vienna. Since 2000 I work for several departments of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. In my free time I'm an avid museums visitor, Europeana end user and OpenGLAM advocate (inspired by Merete Sanderhoff and by Nick Poole's Europeana Dream). I'm taking part in discussions on Twitter about culture and museums, sometimes writing blogposts, also about Europeana.
