I worked as a software engineer for a well-known Dutch software company for about 10 years. But then I decided I did not want to work there anymore. Since then, I've been working with my husband in our own company.
I "discovered" web development early 2000, and I soon found out that I could actually create my own extra (DHTML) features in Dreamweaver by building custom extensions. My first extension was Cross-browser AutoScroller, but I've developed several other ones since then.
