Some new and exciting things on the horizon for me (more on that later) which means I’ll be leaving YoungCapital. So the amazing and caring team that I’m sad to be leaving is hiring! Check out the post here: ✨ https://www.youngcapital.nl/vacatures/549085-fulltime-javascript-developer-at-youngcapital-in-hoofddorp

Even if something doesn’t sound exactly like you, if you like the sound of the work please apply! It’s been an absolute joy to be a part of this team. ❤️

Speaking of expat goals. My breakfast this morning has consisted of goldfish crackers, hobnobs, and a stroopwafel.

Ok, new expat goal. I need to figure out how to get ‘gezellig’ or ‘lekker’ in a sentence with ‘chuffed’ and ‘y’all’.


Today is my wife’s last day at her current job. Next week she starts full time on her own business ✨ https://studiozoen.com ✨. She’s crazy talented and it’s been amazing seeing her do something she loves. ❤️ If you haven’t seen it already please check out her work!

The fact that the UK has zero points and Germany has 3 is all the proof I need that this is European payback. #Eurovision

I think we can all agree Iceland wins the evening no matter what happens. #Eurovision

What the hell Germany. #Eurovision
