I used to believe in skill level, I don't anymore. I now believe in constant development that gets driven by my curiosity.

Because the web industry is in constant change, it requires me to be in constant change too. Luckily, I'm eager to learn new things, which to me is the most important thing of all. Combining this with having an entrepreneurial spirit allows me to push my limits.

    • Angular
    • React
    • Webpack

  • Internship: The Inventis team does a yearly sports challenge. They were still in need of a website which had to be a collection of all the challenges ever done and still to be done. Using the custom Inventis CMS, I wrote a theming system and some additional modules to use in the backend. This way the theme, content and participants could be adjusted for each challenge. I was supposed to only develop the frontend of a desktop version of the template I got from the designer. Instead, I used some assets from the desktop version, created a mobile-friendly template and built a responsive frontend using a mobile first approach.

Strong points

I'm a self-taught webdeveloper, able to build a responsive website by using a mobile-first approach. This way legacy browsers are kept in mind from the beginning.

Being passionate about what I do, combined with having an entrepreneurial spirit allows me to push my limits and constantly explore new things. It's all in the details and about the user experience! Because of this, I am able to easily take actions myself.

Typography-loving geek. While this is most certainly a good thing, it's also a bad thing. I sometimes spent too much time having to choose a font [reason unknown].

It's not always about work, there also has to be room for an occasional drink and gaming session!
