Developer

Hey Bas, what are your superpowers in the Appart Family?

I’ve developed my most important superpower during my time in college. I studied ICT & Media Design, this helped me get an eye for design. This makes me the connecting link between developers and designers within Appart Media. Both have their own unique way of working and thinking, two worlds I try to bring together.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like sports a lot. I usually go mountain biking when the weather is nice and go to the gym when the weather is bad. I take weekly Krav Maga lessons as well.

What's something we can wake you up for?

I’d rather just sleep (a good night sleep is important), but you can wake me up for a special meal if you have to.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I used to want to become a pilot. It has been a dream of mine ever since I was young. A few years ago I got examined to see if I was qualified to become a pilot. Sadly, it didn't work out.

Who have inspired you?

I'm a music lover and very inspired by various artists. Some examples are Mark Knofler (Dire Straits) and Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers). But Snowboarder Travis Rice and actor Dwayne Johnson have inspired me as well. I respect their mindset and view on life a lot!

What is your best memory of Appart Media?

Fruitcorso 2016 without a doubt! It was the first time we were the marketing partner of this event. Our whole team went to Tiel with a positive mindset and full adrenalin. We had to work hard during the day, but had more than enough time to chat in the evening. This created the best atmosphere. Sharing your room with your colleagues, that’s not usual in every company. But it was nothing out of the ordinary for Appart Media.

What do you think defines Appart Media?

Eye for detail is something I find very typical for Appart Media. Everyone, no matter what function or department, applies his or her skills on the project and reviews it critically. Our eye for detail and involvement are what makes Appart Media.
