Rick is an avid Test Philosopher, always up for a good debate, discussion or exploration of the many facets of Testing and Software Development in general. He worked 5 years at Rabobank WRR Finance in the Netherlands and now does development, testing, requirements analysis, Agile scrummastering and test coordination for his consultancy company Hapalion.
When not testing, discussing, or listening at conferences and events, Rick enjoys writing his (one day to be published!) novel, sword fighting and cuddling his outrageously adorable cats. While he has a reputation for always having a story to tell, Rick prefers an interactive lecture or debate to a chalkboard presentation.
