Who we are

This website was made by three great-looking and totally smart guys! The easiest way to introduce them is probably through a short questionnaire, which is exactly what we did. Go check out what these three guys have to say about themselves.

Erik Schierboom

Portrait of Erik
Where are you from?
Doetinchem, The Netherlands.
How old are you?
I was born on the 3rd of June in 1981, guess that makes me 36.
What do you do?
Currently, I'm a web developer. That figures, right?
What inspired you to create iCheckMovies?
There was a time where my goal was to see all IMDb top 250 movies. After seeing virtually all of them, I moved on to the other top lists. Unfortunately, I found it harder and harder to remember what movies I had seen and thus the idea for iCheckMovies was born.
Besides watching movies and programming, do you have any other hobbies?
Yeah of course. I love to play football (soccer for the Americans among us), listen to music and play some games.
What are your favorite movies?
It is hard to single out one movie, so I'll share the honor between Once Upon a Time in The West, The Godfather, Pt. 2, 12 Angry Men and The Lion King. You can check out all my favorites at my favorites page.
Are you still available?
Sorry, I already have a lovely girlfriend.

Piet van Dongen

Where are you from?
Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
How old are you?
I'm 34 years old.
What do you do?
I'm a (web) designer and web developer. I also make music.
What inspired you to create iCheckMovies?
Erik did. And since Erik is a genius at programming, but a terrible designer, I had to help him out.
Besides watching movies, designing, programming and making music, do you have any other hobbies?
If a day had 36 hours, I would start collecting stamps.
What are your favorite movies?
I'm a big fan of David Cronenberg and Stanley Kubrick. Check out my iCheckMovies favorites at my favorites page.
Are you still available?
Depends on how busy I am. If you want me to design you something, contact me.

Marijn Giesen

Where are you from?
Oosterhout, The Netherlands.
How old are you?
I'm 35 years old.
What do you do?
I'm a webdeveloper and Linux sysadmin. My job with iCheckMovies is to build new cool features and keep everything running smoothly!
What inspired you to create iCheckMovies?
Erik and Piet did. As they are terrible sysadmins, I had to help them out.
Besides watching movies and programming, do you have any other hobbies?
Sure. My biggest hobby is my beautiful daughter and I try to spend as much time as I can with her. I also love to play games and read a good book.
What are your favorite movies?
I have many favorite movies, check out my iCheckMovies favorites at my favorites page.
Are you still available?
Depends on what you want from me, but my time is very scarce so I should probably say that I am not available.
