In July 2015 I started WinWorks to develop my idea into an actual online music platform. Ilya joined later, but we haven’t made it official at the Chamber of Commerce yet (that’s why I’m posting the vacancy from my WinWorks-account).

Besides working on the app, I’m the founder of the music blog My Life is a Music Video and I work as a freelance promotion/marketing consultant for amongst others the Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam.
