about me

PERSONAL

I’m a 30 year old software developer from Belgium who has been in the field for over 5 years – and counting.

My passion is all about technology, and creating solutions to problems. Becoming a software developer was a straightforward choice.

I have a wide variety of hobbies and interests outside of work. The most important ones are music, photography, and aviation. I have been playing the clarinet since I was about 8, and today I play in several orchestras and in a clarinet quartet. Lately, flying has become a new hobby of mine. Aiming at a Private Pilot Licence, I’m about to start my training with a Warrior Piper III.

I also like to travel in and outside Europe. I have a strong predilection for Italy and Israel.

My curiosity never abandons me, and I’m always expanding my knowledge by taking extra courses, be it on Coursera, or just by picking up a book. Books about physics, technology and history are always on top of my shelf.

PROFESSIONAL

After graduating in 2012, I started working for linkID nv, part of Lin.K nv. Lin.K is a privately held Belgian company founded in 1992 and provider of technologies and services for online user registration, identification, strong authentication, digital signature/validation of data/transactions using smart cards, mobile phones, tokens and biometrics. That’s where my interest in security came into play. Sadly, linkID went bankrupt in 2016.

In 2016, I started working for Onea nv. Onea provides real-time integrated accounting solutions. In 2017, UnifiedPost acquired Onea.
