“I love creating, instead of just consuming technology.”
I’m Lee Boonstra from Amsterdam, the Netherlands and I’m a Googler. I work as a sales engineer in the Google Cloud team where I assist the sales team with technical knowledge about cloud computing and machine learning for the financial industry.
I studied Art & Technology in 2004 and during my last year of my study I worked for Accenture as a senior Java developer. I worked for clients such as UPC and KLM (Dutch Royal Airlines). Started my own webdev company when I was 19 years old.
Although I really liked it, after 3 years I decided to make the move to the front-end. I think it’s advantageous to understand back-end technologies while working on the front-end. I’m a creative person and I like to have a nice workflow and see my changes directly on the screen. That’s why I’ve worked as a teamlead at a creative agency in the Netherlands where we created (mobile) websites and apps for clients such as Heineken and Philips.
Beside technology I love (alternative) music, concerts and I’m a videogames addict.
