I was born and raised in the Netherlands. My father was a school principal and I was the youngest of six children.
After high school, I received an education in electronics. When I was 23 years old, I decided I wanted to see more of the world. I got a job at a radio factory in what is now called Zimbabwe. Subsequently, I have also lived in different parts of the world: South Africa, France, and now California, USA.
My wife, Lynn, and I live in a cabin in the mountains of Los Padres National Forest. We have a married son and two cute grandkids.
I started working with computers in 1970, while working for Hewlett-Packard, first in hardware and then as a programmer. When the Internet started to take off and personal computers came along, I jumped with both feet into creating Web pages. Aside from that I also gained experience as a technical writer.
At this time, I am retired, but still have a lot of fun creating interactive Web pages. Lynn and I keep busy running a small business selling, among other things, pain relief products.
Our goals for the future include financial independence and helping to make the world a better place.
