If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.

About DaPino

Hello, I am Pien Duijverman

Born on December 2nd in 1968 in The Netherlands. After a lot of experiences inside and outside my country, I settled down in my country 5 years ago with feelings of freedom. It was difficult to find my way In the beginning but finally, I came back home. After long, my home is a place where I yearn to belong with my dog Daantje.
And earned my money as freelancer for a software company. I did the acquisition, not really my business but I was convinced to feel at home in my work once again....

On one day, while I was surfing around the internet, I visited a flash website. I've got a feeling: This is what I would like to learn and I did. I've got my first offer while I was studying and so on. The very beginning of the One Woman-Dog company -DaPino- and far from the end.

I'm happy with my life, my home and my work I do with a lot of fun and passion!!

“ I think playing and noticing are crucial parts of the creative process, and I try to remind myself that I get paid to play and notice things for a living. Sometimes, I can't even believe it. ”
