Who am I

Born on a Friday in the Spring of 1966, I was the first child of a dutch couple. They named me Elizabeth, after my grandmother, but called me Els, which is an abbreviation of that name.

I grew up the eldest of four, in Rotterdam, Holland, and as far as I remember, had a happy childhood.

School was easy, but at the age of 17, after highschool, I couldn't be bothered to pick up any particular study, so I just got myself a job. Working four years for a large insurance company, I picked up plenty of administration skills, and was almost never out of work after that. Worked for a million companies, mostly temping, as I didn't like to stay in one place too long. If I liked a place enough, I stayed a bit longer though.

In 2005 I started freelancing as a web developer, and am still enjoying that.
