I’m the General Manager/Founder of APPTASTIC N.V, a software development company focused on developing technological innovations. Having a exciting job dayly, leads to challenging projects such as creating an interactive digital surface for Telesur (Telecommunications provider), where anybody can communicate with a surface/screen through touch gestures. Also creating a mobile application for the EBS (Energy Company Suriname) to professionalise their data gathering in the field was a very tricky yet exciting project. And did I mention that we won the Telesur/IT-Core Hackathon v2.0.14, indeed an awesome experience.
Before fully branching over to technological innovations c.q. application development, I learned the ropes of entrepreneurship through small jobs in digital design and printing. While this was a great hobby, it also provided the basic finances to finally start the company, now hiring a staff and working in a modern office.
I have a BSc. in Electrical Engineering from Anton de Kom University in Suriname, but a dosis of experience when it comes to getting things done with passion.
In the end I’m truly passionate about creating positive change, and learned a major part from joining the Junior Chamber International Suriname (JCI) in 2006, after just graduating from High School. This organisation empowered me to be the person I am today: The young entrepreneur and positive change activist, who is very goal-oriented and innovative in thinking and doing.
I’m always interested in hearing from former colleagues, managers, or just interesting creative folk, so feel free to contact me if you’d like to connect.
