Hi, I'm Wouter. I build applications and web things using Rust, Typescript, and C#. I love designing and creating user interfaces, building REST APIs, and developing products to make them better than ever, as well as writing technical documentation and blog articles.

In my spare time I build games and other cool stuff over at Epic Teddy Games. I also enjoy making music, reading, playing board games, and cycling (if the weather's good).

I'm always open to talk about new opportunities. Interested in working with me? Reach out.
