So, welcome to my portfolio! My name is Alexander van der Kolk.
I live in Roosendaal, the Netherlands. I graduated as of summer 2008 as Bachelor of Computer Science at the Academy for IT and Media in the field of Media Technology in Breda, the Netherlands. For a living I work as a Software Engineer at Logica a world-wide IT and management consultancy company. I'm deployed in the Technical Software Engineering department as an all-round programmer.
This portfolio should show you my accomplishments and work history, it will be added in the near future. Until then there is some basic information about my interests and a way to contact me. For more information I would like to direct you to my blog and project hosting website at kolky.nl.
PC & Console Games
I'm not tied to a genre or platform. I enjoy games aslong as they are original, have a good story, fascinate me in the way it works or are just good for wasting time. Some examples of games or game-series I really dig: World of Warcraft, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Uncharted, Prince of Persia, Grand Theft Auto and Warcraft.
Somehow I've developed a love for programming. I love diving into existing code and find my way around, scramble about on some of my own projects, read blogs and magazines about it and have a great time at work doing it for a living.
Card & Boardgames
I've activly played Magic: The Gathering a few years back and I still enjoy a regular game from time to time. With some friends we even setup a non-profit organisation called TrefpuntMagic, we organize Magic: The Gathering tournaments and regular Board Game events for a wide audiance.
