I’m a Flemish native, former on-call musician (took me a couple of years to learn there is no making money in that crazy scene) and certified biotechnician who in 1996 by chance landed in the at that time booming IT business.
I spent the biggest part of my digital life working for multi-national corporations like Microsoft, Dell, HP, and British Telecom - rapidly advancing the promotional ladder while dealing with the internals of Windows releases (in a rare case Linux) and spreading our holy gospel during all kinds of customer events.
Learned a lot and met amazingly talented people of which I can call some a close friend. Great times, until I discovered there was nothing new to explore, stuck in a career with no chance to grow. So, after a long period of doubt (was giving up a good paying job without even knowing what to do next), end 2017 I hit the brake, quit, booked a flight to Paris and started as a one-man-shop.
Now you probably were going to ask me if I have any regets leaving those bags of stock options behind. No, I’ve had my share of blunders and absurdities creeping in but never would go back. Love my freedom.
What else? I’m interested in far too much topics ranging from science to history, kendo, trekking the Alps, my (2008) Suzuki GSXR-600, driving the neighbours to insanity when rehearsing paradiddles; the list goes on.
