Let me introduce myself

I have always been passionate about technology and computers. During high school, I used web inspector tools to modify colors and texts, which felt like magic. To expand my knowledge in (web)app development and make it my career, I completed two relevant studies. I highly value the right user experience and the best interaction design.

My name is Thijmen Krol, and I live and work in Groningen, the Netherlands. Besides my part-time employment at Tapart, I run my own freelance business called dotking. With dotking, I assist various companies in achieving their online goals, ranging from informational/webshop websites to comprehensive web applications. Are you curious about what I can do for you?
