My name is Erik van Dongen and I was born in 1972. I live in a small village in the South of the Netherlands (about 35 km below Rotterdam) with my wife Winnifred and our kids Emma and Jasper.
I spend my working days at the City of Breda as a SQL Server developer, a job I am quite passionate about. My specific areas of expertise are Microsoft SQL Server 2000-2014, Sharepoint 2003-2010 and Baan IV. In the past I have worked as a Planning and Control Advisor, System Administrator and Account Coordinator Finance.
I am a passionate rider of veteran and vintage motorcycles and classic scooters. I like working on my machines as well.
Besides that I started playing the double bass in september 2013 together with my 7 year old daughter and I am loving every minute of it. And I also like working on my basses.
