Here you will find an overview of projects that I am involved in (or have been in the past).
In October 2017 I wanted to do something more with a passion that I have had since I was a few years old; Nintendo!
Ever since daybreak I have had love for the gaming world and with a primary focus on what Nintendo does. They have always been at the forefront of innovations and the like in the field of gaming.
Reporting in the Netherlands in the field of Nintendo was not as good as I wanted it to be. That is why I decided to set up my own medium, NintendoReporters.
We focus the medium on everything from Nintendo and all consoles that come with it such as the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS and 2DS. That covers, among other things; news, previews, reviews, guides, editorials, interviews, releases, rumors and much more.
Primarily, the Dutch market is my main focus, but because news often comes out earlier / faster in English, I have decided to make this medium bilingual. In English there is, of course, a huge amount of news coverage and there are the necessary parties we want to aspire to be like.
You’re going to hear a lot from Nintendo Reporters, so stay tuned!
Let’s face it, not everything I do has turned into gold that I might have had in mind. Some projects just run differently than you sometimes expect. Nevertheless, I am of the opinion that you should not sweep things under the rug, so below projects that have not resulted in a success;
If you do not know it yet, which is of course possible, PFSquad.NU is what you can call ‘mn baby’. A project that I started in August 2005 with several friends and something that has grown to a completely different form than that I and they first had in mind (only in a positive sense).
We do a lot more than just taking pictures at various events in my home country and abroad. Think of taking care of press releases, agenda items, downloads etc.
But the most important thing is that I still do it with a lot of pleasure. Especially because we still get so many nice reactions to what we do, which of course thanks!
In short, PFSquad.NU is a party picture and news concept.
Via PFSquad.NU you can, if you wish, request a photographer for an event or have your news items posted.
In addition, we organize (or rather mainly my colleague Dennis Wijnen) under the name PFSquad Events regularly own events in the vicinity of our birthplace Helmond. Under PFSquad Events we already have several concepts (Earkillers, Hellmouth, Beat a Licious, Fuck the Polonaise and Lost in Dreams) under out belt.

I can talk to you about PFSquad for hours, but I think that might be too much to put it here in practice, but as you can see we do quite a bit and therefore I would like to say take a look and let us put a smile on your face!
Update: August 2019
After careful consideration, I have decided to stop this project.

Vindjefototerug is a project that I created in 2013 to be a collection platform of photos of the nightlife.
Unfortunately, for the sake of copyrights, I had to approach the idea differently and therefore it had to change to only become link to the photos on other mediums. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm was not high enough to make it worth the time.
That is why I abandoned this project after giving it a fair chance.
WSOGuru is a project that I had in mind when I was in between jobs, to possibly look at Freelance work in the field of WSO (Web Site Optimization) and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for myself. But getting enough work to be self-sufficient in it was not a big success.
That may also have to do with the fact that I’m not the strongest person commercially … and I find selling myself and what’s involved as simply a nuisance.
