Hi, I'm Bram
Most people call me Bee. I write, create, and break things on the internet.
I'm multilingual — I speak Dutch, English, and German.
The rolling "r" in Bram can be hard to pronounce, which led to my nickname (securi)bee.
While I might be most known for my involvement with numerous bug bounty communities and my bug bounty Twitter list, I started out as a web developer.
I enjoy creating and optimizing workflows. A good example of this is my article on a better way to use Twitter.
I enjoy building static websites, single page- and universal web applications — focusing on user experience, performance, and security.
I've been responsible for building numerous MVP applications using REST API following the CRUD cycle. These were all build with Ruby on Rails.
Using Rake and Node.js I've built automation, bots, and serverless functions.
Figma is my tool of choice for almost all of my design work. Designing a website however, takes place directly in the browser. Shout out to TailwindCSS for making this task a breeze.
For the last several years, I've been building a lot with Shopify and the Jamstack. Both are a joy to work with, straightforward, without many abstractions.
The "J" in Jamstack has been represented by Nuxt.js, and I've recently started using Eleventy. For the latter I use Alpine.js to sprinkle in behavior as I see fit.
I started doing bug bounties a year after being introduced to information security in 2019. It took me a while to get into the right mindset to actually begin earning bug bounties.
I've since been able to help numerous companies resolve severe vulnerabilities.
What helped my progress tremendously is all of the amazing web security content, creators put out. Being involved in the bug bounty and Twitch community, really emphasized to me that knowledge is meant to be shared.
This prompted me to start sharing more myself, such as my curated bug bounty Twitter list. I also became a champion for several bug bounty communties. This led to me being asked by NahamSec to moderate for his community, Hacker101, and numerous online conferences.
Being able to give back is extremely fulfilling.

Things I love
My wife and daughter
Thank you for showing me the importance of the little things in life.
What I love about working with the web is that it's ever-evolving. I enjoy the continuous learning process.
The Dutch "nuchterheid" keeps me grounded.
I've always been fascinated by workflows, and to find new ways to compliment or improve my own.
This is a zen moment for me. I wind down and only focus on preparing a meal.
I love to iterate over a design and distill it to its purest form.
My music of choice is and always has been hip-hop. I appreciate that it's raw and real.
One of my favorite pastimes is watching martial arts, UFC in particular.
I couldn't fit them all in one picture but they're all bundles of joy.
Every Monday I share my love for the web: genuine, actionable, and curated to save you time.
