Nick Veenhof

Senior Search Engineer, Acquia Content Services
Acquia, Inc.

Nick obtained a M.Sc in Computer Science in the UPC, Barcelona and started to work for Acquia after an intense internship at Acquia where he improved the Apache Solr Module. He has already some years of experience in the field working for different Drupal companies and Drupal grew to one of his passions next to travelling.
When he is not in the Acquia HQ in Boston or somewhere else in the world, he is at home in Belgium (not accidentally the home of Drupal!).
