Welcome to my website. My name is Jeroen, as you've probably deduced. I make digital products over on Tinkers and Toymakers and Veiligheidsregio Groningen. You can find some of my work in my portfolio below.
Here you can see some of the things I have done over my career. Feel free to browse around and if something is of interest, feel free to contact me through my contact info on the about page!
Please enjoy your stay!
So, what is it you do again?
It's the most common question I get. I think it's the most common question anyone gets who works with technology these days.
You can probably hear I have a passion for tech. I love making these products and I am proud of the work I did on them. So I hope you'll enjoy them too.

If you have used OBI4WAN, you'll know it requires some careful use to get the most out of it. In times of crises as I often dealt with during my work at the Veiligheidsregio Groningen being able to quickly set up OBI4WAN and get on with data analysis is crucial.
To aid our speed, I created a simple tool and analysis format to make sure we could meet deadlines.Open it!
I think every journalist was inspired by Snowfall, a longread by the NY Times. At the paper where I worked, we wondered how close we could get with the limited resources we had.
It wasn't an easy road with an extremely limited budget both in time and money to get from a story to a longread. But thanks to a few gifted colleagues we got to a very nice end result.Open it!
