Born and raised in The Netherlands where he experimented with radios from a young age climbing on top of high-rise buildings to see how far he could get with his walk talkie. Rogier Obtained his Class A Ham radio license in 1990  (pa1zz) and worked in exotic locations in the diving industry. Always carrying something ham radio related with him. Lived from 2000 – 2006 on the Caribbean sand of Bonaire of Bonaire. Where a local religious radio station made ham radio impossible since it put so much energy into the air that his SWR meeter was stuck in a corner without a transmitter attached to it.

His affinity and fascination with ham radio became useful after moving to the California where Rogier worked for Apple as a lead Genius later he started as a independent iT consultant dedicated to Apple and everything that is connected to it. Since our computers have become useless without an internet connection his understanding of the the behavior of radio waves became very helpful when installing WiFi networks for businesses and homes.

On a daily basis Rogier is confronted with the aftermath of compromised user accounts. Tonights topic will be about the importance of the importance of the protection of your online security and privacy. Explains how criminals obtain and share private user data and what you can do to protect yourself without having to wear a thin-foil hat or go “off the grid”
