Product Owner and Technical Lead with founder experience
Various Programming Languages
User Experience Design: Gamification
Contributing with a broad mix of skills and inspiring vision I am adept at finding the optimal solution which teams and stakeholders embrace. Because of my technical background, I am able to analyse, plan, but also build proof-of-concepts that bring my visions to life.
So, are you looking for that expert generalist? Would you benefit extra from deep and broad technical knowledge? Prefer someone with founder experience? And producing boot camps singlehandedly?
Contact me. And we can foster the world of tomorrow, today.

They live stream retail security footage via the cloud so everyone can catch thieves from the leisure of their homes. From a concept, I designed and built the full-stack prototype. My deliverables were essential for €200K of funding (Imec & Investors & Subsidy).
2015 - 2016
The house of Indie Business Analyst / Project Manager
Made an analysis of this game developer collective to find new revenue streams and consulted with supporting financial plans. In parallel I produced a 7-day game developer summer-school with a €20K budget. This included food and lodging for 10 int. speakers and 15 int. attendees. Course content was also my responsibility.

Prior and in parallel to my professional IT experience I worked in the hospitality as a cocktail shaker, host, and waiter. This adds 6 years of experience in leadership and autonomous roles.

“Over the past 5 years, I have had the pleasure to work with Johnny on many projects in a variety of team formations. Several years ago, we co-founded a company resulting in a period of wonderful projects. In the company, Johnny was mostly active as a producer and businessperson.
When Johnny is given a responsibility you can be sure that things will be taken care of. Johnny is ambitious, persistent and optimistic. He keeps his eyes on the prize and will not easily settle for less. Hopefully, our paths cross again in future ventures.”
