Who is Joeplaa

I'm Joep, 35 years old and currently living in Eindhoven in The Netherlands. I went to Eindhoven to study mechanical engineering at TU/e university. After working as a mechanical engineer for 7.5 years, I quit my "dayjob" and started working full time on my own company: jodiBooks.

At jodiBooks I have learned how to do front-end design and website hosting. Now I will also help you create your digital home. I'll design your homepage and take care of hosting it.

What is Joeplaa

Joeplaa, pronounce "you-p-laah", is an abbreviation of my full name: Joep van de Laarschot. Initially I started using it to shorten my e-mail address, but it turned into my "official" handle @joeplaa everywhere on the web. I've originally started joeplaa.com as my personal blog, which you can still find at https://blog.joeplaa.com.

Now, with this website, joeplaa.com 2.0, I want to show you what I can do. It both is and contains my portfolio. Have a look around and let me know if you like my work.
