Hi there, my name is Remkus de Vries. Well, it’s actually Joeke-Remkus, but given how most of you will pronounce the J as dzy.. I decided to drop that one. I am from the Netherlands, but really I consider myself a world (class) citizen. In my bio on, such as Twitter, you will find the following text describing me: Spiritual being having a human experience. Love my wife and kids, NLP & Mindmapping, WordPress and Life in general. Uomo Universale wannabe™, Frysk. WordPress designer & developer.. and that’s pretty much what it is.

I’m 41 years old and happily married to Karin and proud father of my son Roan and daughters Marinde & Sterre. I live in the province of Fryslân (which will explain my Frisian first names) and I’m the CEO of Forsite Media. Forsite Media is a WordPress specialist internet media company specialized in enterprise solutions.

WordPress much?

Yes, very very much. Not only do am I working with this wonderful piece of software, I am also the admin of the Dutch WordPress forums, lead the translations team and make sure the Dutch WordPress version are released in a timely fashion. On top of that I’m also the president of the WP Nederland foundation and of the things we do is organize the Dutch WordCamps. Not stopping there though, I’m was also the co-lead and lead for the first two WordCamp Europe conferences.
