About me

Hi! My name is Melvin and I live in Groningen, The Netherlands. My passion lies in everything that is IT-related, but especially in the information security discipline. I currently work as an ethical hacker / advisor at Insite Security and I love participating in bug bounty programs. I also really like to work on random projects in Ruby, Bash, Elixir and other programming languages.

Thanks for your interest, and if you want to get in touch please send me a message on Twitter or e-mail me at
