Meet the TEAM!
Danny is the proud founder of SamMobile.com. His first Samsung phone was the SGH-D900, which he considers to be the best slider phone ever. He likes football (Ajax/FC Barcelona) and Formula 1 (Red Bull).
Daniel van Dorp
Daniel is a DevOps engineer who was born and raised in the Netherlands (where he still resides). He joined the SamMobile team right after Danny and Martin in 2011 and witnessed the site’s growth from 0 to nearly 10 million registered users. Outside SamMobile, he works as a Cloud System Engineer at a digital transformation company that develops a high productivity aPaaS. Most of his spare time is spent enjoying nature (and life in general) with his girlfriend, friends, and family.
Martin is the co-founder of SamMobile. He’s a self-proclaimed “Samsung nerd”, with his love for the company starting the moment he got his hands on the D400. When the Galaxy S hit, his love turned into a full-time obsession. In his spare time, Martin loves spending time with his family (what’s more important than that?) and cooking delicious meals on the barbecue, which is usually followed by gym sessions for burning off the calories.
Johan lives in the beautiful country of Sweden where he enjoys a cold home brewed IPA on his porch whenever he gets the time. Johan is a tech enthusiast to the core and always thrives to know how things work. When he’s not pushing code and news at SamMobile, he works as lead Android developer for a popular app in Sweden. His spare time is spent with his friends and family and watching movies and TV shows.
Abhijeet's writing career started with custom ROM guides for Samsung devices (including the original Galaxy S), and he moved to SamMobile in mid-2013 and worked up the ranks to Editor-in-chief. His first Samsung phone was the D500, and he draws the line at blindly following a product or company (making him the biggest critic in the team). His interests include gaming, listening and singing along to music from before the 70s, and watching the occasional superhero and sci-fi movie.
Adnan Farooqui is the Senior Executive Editor at SamMobile. Based in Pakistan, his interests include technology, finance, Swiss watches and Formula 1. His tendency to write long posts betrays his inclination to being a man of few words.
Naomi van Maasakkers
Naomi is the graphic designer at SamMobile (she’s the one in charge of our beautiful magazine). Her first Samsung phone was the Samsung E350 (a lady phone, as they call it), and she has stuck with the company since she got the Galaxy i7500. She plays hockey in her free time, in addition to cooking and spending time with her friends and family.
Naresh Nekkanti is our new writer. Based in Bangalore, India, he is passionate about Technology, Politics, Philosophy and Movies. He offers you an opinion even if you didn’t ask for one. He dreams of a world devoid of loading and buffering screens.
Mihai is a blogger and column writer at SamMobile. His first Samsung phone was an A800 which took a lot of beating, and a part of him still misses the novelty of the clamshell design. In his free time, he enjoys watching shows, documentaries, and stand-up comedy; listening to music, taking walks, and occasionally playing old(er) video games.
Henk van Loosbroek
With the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note in 2011, my eyes focussed on the Samsung-brand and became a "Samsung-fan"! Since then, I "upgraded" every year my phone: Note 2 -> Note 3 -> Note 4 -> ALL great phones, but then it stopped for the Note-series in the Netherlands for a few years! In between 2015-2017 I switched to the S-series (S6, S7Edge, S8Plus) but was VERY HAPPY the Note8 became available in 2017 (which now is my current phone!). In my spare time, I love watching movies & series on my (Samsung) QLED TV (mostly sci-fi/fantasy), helping people when they've problems with their (Samsung) phones, and moderating some fora. In case you wondered: where does he get the time to do this all? Well: am "retired navy", and enjoying my "free time" now!
