Ever since I can remember I’ve had a passion for figuring out how things work. This lead me to creating websites when I was 11 years old. Which in turn lead me to programming. As with many projects I thought I’d move on from it eventually, but I never did and till this day I’m still programming with the same passion as the little 11 year old me.
On April 16 2013 I started playing on a Minecraft server called FreeCraft. This changed my life in ways that I can’t even imagine. After playing on the server for a while I started developing custom plugins for the server. Not only did this give me the opportunity to test my creations with a relatively large group of people, it also nurtured my love for game design. When FreeCraft shut down I didn’t sit around and mourn for too long, for I saw an opportunity to create a better FreeCraft that never could have been with the way it was set up. Together with Adrian Plantenga and Katie Budgen I started working on a new project. And thus PlantPlant & Co was born.
From 2014 to 2018 I studied at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences for software engineering and game design. During this time I worked on various projects ranging from websites for an art center to a game that teaches children basic math.
