Hi, I’m Marco.

I’m a Web developer and Sound Designer originally from the Netherlands. I’m currently based in South-West Germany, working remotely for Boords as a web developer.

What I do

I’m a happy generalist, but my main discipline is front-end web development.

I have a background in design and 15+ years of experience in creative, multi-disciplinary teams. I’ve worked mostly on javascript-heavy front-end projects, but also love working on traditional websites.
I’m also exploring work as a Sound Designer for games and art installations.

When I was a lot younger, I was really into radio (not anymore, nowadays). That’s where my passion for audio started. Besides hosting a few shows on both online and FM radio stations, I was regularly producing content like sweepers, promos, and similar things for myself and my colleagues.

That was the start of a lot of my experimentation with sound editing, often using SFX libraries and manipulating them to make exciting material.
For a few years, I was the sole audio branding person on the team of a major online radio station. I have dabbled in creating music, but now I’m focusing my energy on sound design.

With my background as a web developer, I have 15+ years of experience working in creative multi-disciplinary teams, and I am also a strong technical thinker. I like to think in systems, which is helpful during implementation or when designing the sound-related systems that a game might require.

Outside of work

When I’m not working, I like taking walks, looking at birds, gaming, playing guitar, making music/sounds, travelling, and hanging out with my wife.

Me in other places

I can be found in many places on the internet under the username marcohamersma. I don't post as often as I used to, but here's a list of places you can find me:

Have a nice day!
