Work has to be fun. Generally spoken I manage to laugh and have fun every day. Ofcourse I continue to work. Just because of the fun the work will be better and easier.
A good balance between work and private time is important to me.

Besides three apprenticeships, I have worked for A.C.D. in Vianen from 1982 until 1984.
Late 1984 I joined Reuters B.V. . Reuters has merged with Thomson in 2008 and became Thomson Reuters. Now, in 2018, the Financial & Risk departments were sold to Blackstone and the new company formed is called Refinitiv.

At A.C.D. I was responsible for the production and maintenance of the telephonic alarm systems they produced. I stayed for about three years.

Refinitiv/ Thomson Reuters is one of the biggest Market Data vendors in the world. Reuters you might know from their news pictures in newspapers and television.

See my  C.V. for details.

Haraka haraka haina baraka is a Swahili proverb that translates as "hurry, hurry has no blessing".
It is equivalent to the English proverb "Haste makes waste". It's so much cooler.
