Hi, I’m Maaike, the author of this website. I test life, beer & software. I love writing and I hope you enjoy reading the stories and blogs on my website. I work as a test consultant for a variety of clients. I own the company Sensibly together with my partner Oliver Verver. I also enjoy speaking about testing at conferences and meetups. My main topics are holistic testing, exploratory testing, and psychology in testing. Would you like me to speak at your organisation? Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Although I like technology, I plan a lot of analog time in my life. I love walking, especially in mountains. Sadly, the Netherlands don’t have any of those so I usually go to Scotland to get my ‘mountain-fix’. I appreciate spending quality time with my friends and family. I like to practice yoga every day, to take care of my mental space. On top of that, I’m a bookworm. So instead of gazing at my phone, I’m probably gazing at my Kindle.
My biggest hobby is making music; I play the clarinet. Here’s a recording of my orchestra:
I love animals and don’t eat them. I love birds the most. This is one of my birds, Woody.
Hope you liked reading about me, don’t hesitate to get in contact if you want to chat! Shooting me a message on Twitter is probably the easiest, @Maaikees
