I would describe myself as a creative problem solver that gets things done. I take pride in what I do and am insatiably curious. I’m multilingual (Dutch, English, and German). I have a growth mindset, love to learn, and am always open to criticism.
My nickname Bee was given to me because the rolling "r" in my name, Bram, can be hard to pronounce.
- Building Static Websites, Single Page- and Universal Web Applications
- Building MVP applications using REST API following the CRUD cycle
- Graphic design using Figma, Photoshop, and Illustrator
- Following best practices, e.g. progressive enhancement, secure development principles, responsive design, and accessibility
- Developing themes and custom features for WordPress and Shopify
- Building automation and serverless functions
The journey of a web developer is never-ending and I'm loving every second of it! For the last several years I've built a lot with Shopify and the Jamstack. For the latter, I mainly used Nuxt.js but have recently started using Eleventy. I enjoy iterating over a design, and to tinker with CSS. To speed up this process I started using TailwindCSS.
- Finding web vulnerabilities in companies. (Here are some I’m able to disclose: IBM, Stripe, Basecamp, HackerOne, and Marriott.)
- Utilizing tools written in Bash, Python, Rust, and Golang
- Interacting with companies on technical levels to discuss findings and resolutions
- Automating workflows using webhooks for notifications
- Developing tooling
I started doing bug bounties in 2020, after being introduced to information security in 2019. I've since been able to help numerous companies resolve severe vulnerabilities.
Over the years, I've amassed a lot of experience on various facets of computers and the web. I'll be using this platform to share my thoughts and findings on this and more.
I gain my inspiration by following and supporting those who push the needle, share knowledge, and create.
Being involved in the bug bounty and Twitch community really emphasized to me that knowledge is meant to be shared. It prompted me to start sharing more myself.
Creating helpful resources was the natural progression, e.g. I made this handy curated bug bounty Twitter list. It reduces noise and allows one to search with context.
After gaining "sufficient" bug bounty knowledge, I started lending a hand in Nahamsec's bug bounty community. Being able to help others is such a rewarding feeling. I met some awesome people, and was even asked to administer several online conferences.
My role consists of administering and moderating both Discord and Twitch, set up bots, channels, roles, serverless functions, and automation. To provide custom functionality I make use of (serverless) bots, the Twitch API, and NodeJS.
At any given moment I'm multitasking, while fulfilling my core admin duties. During events, I communicate with and facilitate to organizers, speakers, and attendees.

Inclusive bug bounty community.
To keep up with the latest developments, I mainly make use of RSS and
Twitter Tweetdeck. For the latter, I only consume it using lists. I also enjoy listening to podcasts, mostly when doing mundane tasks.
A special mention goes out to the bug bounty and infosec community as a whole. They greatly contributed to my overall growth in the past year. Their openness and willingness to share helped me become a more well-rounded developer.
Things I love
my wife and daughter
They both made and continue to make me a better person. Through them, I also discovered the meaning of life.
To uplift, love and be loved, share and help loved ones succeed.
What I love about working with the web is that it's ever-evolving.
I enjoy the continuous learning process. To pick up new tools, languages, and frameworks.
All my loved ones, friends, and family in the Netherlands.
Being from an Indo-Dutch background means a focus on family and food.
I've always been fascinated by workflows, and to find new ways to compliment or improve my own.
My latest additions to my workflow have been NVIM, tmux, a tiling WM, and Bash.
This is a zen moment for me. I wind down and only focus on preparing a meal.
My favorite cuisine is Indonesian, followed by Thai, Japanese, and Indian.
I love to iterate over a design and distill it to its purest form. The web should be accessible to all, not just a select few.
An UI should be intuitive and require no instructions.
My music of choice is and always has been hip-hop. I appreciate that it's raw and real.
Currently, I listen to a lot of Griselda, J. Cole, and Flatbush Zombies.
One of my favorite pastimes is watching martial arts. When I was younger I also participated.
Growing up my favorite thing to watch was K1 (kickboxing). Currently, the UFC scratches that itch.
I couldn't fit them all in one picture but they're all bundles of joy.
They provide unconditional love, and happiness to our lives.
