I'm an independent full time product developer. I have my own product development firm with all facilities to create new stuff. I like to keep my head busy with solving all sorts of problems. I chew on them, let idea's get to the surface, play with crazy thoughts and put it together to form a consistent concept. I like to start with a problem, ideas are welcome but not necessary yet.
