My name is Danny van Kooten and I’m a young and passionate webdeveloper available for hire through my own company, van Kooten Internet Media.
From hobby to self employed webdeveloper
I am currently pursuing my Bachelors degree in Computer Science while simultaneously trying to travel as much as possible.
At the age of 19 I started studying Computer Science and started my own company to make some money on the side. I started working with WordPress, a lot. I probably converted over 100 Photoshop designs to WordPress themes during my first year of business. I’m also the developer of a few popular plugins like Newsletter Sign-Up, which has been downloaded over 85.000 times at the time of writing.
“If one advances confidently in the direction of one's dreams, and endeavors to live the life which one has imagined, one will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
I am blessed with an amazing imagination which is why I have never ever been bored for one single moment in my life. I am no person to sit around and do nothing, I have an amazingly long bucket list. A small part of this list can be found below.
- Graduating and start working from abroad as soon as possible.
- Be self employed for life.
- Living in South-East Asia for the bigger part of 2013 – while doing an internship.
- Helping (and meeting) as many people as possible.
What I like to do besides nerding around
When I’m not nerding around you’ll often find me visiting music festivals, having a beer or practicing MMA. I’ve stood in the ring for 5 times but now only train for recreational purposes.
