In your opinion, what makes for a successful day?
I inspired someone, and in turn they inspired me. That and, I will have learned something new and important.
What do you sometimes get annoyed or angry about?
Bureaucracy – rules that are being applied without considering the bigger picture.
Workaholic or work-life balance?
I like to work and I want to understand technology so that I have a clearer picture of it. But, my family means a lot to me. That’s why I turn my attention off of work as soon as I’m on the way home. Family time is very important for me.
What quality do you value the most in a colleague?
I appreciate when someone uses their unique skills responsibly for our company.
Do you have a secret talent?
Had I not gone into software, I would probably be a carpenter today. If I need some time for myself, you can probably find me in the workshop in my cellar.
