My main professional focus is Microsoft SharePoint, specifically information architecture, training and technical project management. I am a Microsoft Office (particularly Outlook, Word, Excel and Visio) evangelist and help users improve their time management as well as personal productivity skills.

I believe in the power of the SharePoint community and contribute via my blog and Twitter and was one of the three organisers of SharePoint Saturday Stockholm in 2014.


  • Information architect
    Plan and implement information architectures based on organization needs
  • Trainer
    Train end users, administrators and consultants on SharePoint and other Microsoft products
  • Project management
    Use technical background to ensure all parties are working towards the same goals with traditional and agile project methods
  • Business analyst
    Determine, understand and translate needs into functional and technical specifications
  • Technology evangelist
    Spread enthusiasm about the work and Microsoft products, organized SharePoint Saturday Stockholm 2014 and spoke at SharePoint Saturday Oslo 2014


In May 2012, I moved from the Hague, the Netherlands to Stockholm, Sweden. I currently work all over the Nordics.



In my free time, you can find me (re)watching Doctor Who episodes, reading epic fantasy books and knitting socks.
