Hello I'm Marcel and I code websites
Welcome to my website, I'm Marcel Timmer. Born in a scenic place in the Netherlands in '81, I now live near Amsterdam. I'm married and father of two sons. This website tells my experiences and thoughts on both a personal and a professional level. I have a professional career as a program manager at Sonion's R&D headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have a strong background in mechanical engineering, having a higher vocational education and university degree in engineering. When I'm out of the office you'll probably find me sitting behind my laptop working on various Internet projects, since I'm a freelance webdesigner. While already spending too much time on my daytime profession, this website focusses on my Internet activities. Much of my experiences and thoughts are collected in my weblog. Read more Some personal moments were captured by digital still camera, a selection of which can be found in the photography section. Read more
As I was born and raised in Zutphen, I spent much of my time on my mechanical engineering study, not knowing what great pleasure Internet had to offer me. It was not until the mid 90's that I bought my very own computer.
My interest for HTML programming started around 1999. Inspired by some interesting articles by Eric Meyer and Jeffrey Zeldman things started to get more serious, using CSS and making my websites comply with the STRICT-DTD of the W3C guidelines. One of the beste examples of my recent work is www.dailyoffers.nl, which is a project I started during the cold spring evenings of 2007 when I was living in Washington DC. The website was sold in 2009. For an overview of my work please check out my portfolio on the showcase page. Read more
