Michiel S.

Michiel S.

Ruby programmer and artist

Netherlands - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 1

I always loved designing and sketching. When I became an engineering student I got myself into computer programming. Then as the highly creative person that I am I tried to make a career as an artist. Out of my creativity came the love back for programming. Parametric design and CNC milling and printing techniques began shaping my interest for the exactness of programming. I am now at the point that I can also effectively design a web app as well as do many things with computational art. Ruby, Rails and Sinatra are my favorite web-frameworks. As a long term vision I do see myself using my skills in math, computers and design to bring my field of work closer to that of architects, animators and other creatives. I also paint. Most interestingly here about this probably is my perspective drawing which could be useful at some point for visualizing ideas. Maybe a quality fineline watercolor sketch could lead to surprising insights for your business.

When you step into uncharted territory, you are also stepping into total abandonment, potential humiliation and a space where nothing is guaranteed; there’s no case study or roadmap… it’s scary and exiting as all hell. Taking the leap is the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself:)
