About Me

I'm an independent security researcher focused on EVM security. Most of my time is spent looking for bugs in smart contracts, but I also love researching past exploits.

"Lourens is showing rapid growth, finding more and more Highs and Mediums, while keeping Report Quality very high, he'll do very well in 2024!"- Alex The Entreprenerd, C4 Judge and Security Researcher

"Lourens did an incredible job of auditing my protocol in a calm professional manner. It had been audited once before but he found several high and medium risk issues that were not caught the first time. He also gave a lot of guidance with ideas to make the protocol more robust and he shared freely from his wealth of knowledge to help implement solutions to the issues he had found. I will be seeking Lourens’ help the next time I have any auditing needs."- Elliot, TaskMarketplace

"Excellent, quality written report."- bytes032, C4 Lookout

"This is a very well-written explanation, thanks for this submission."- EigenLayer
