From 2005 to 2009, I studied multimedia development at the IAD in Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium.
During my studies I was extremely lucky to meet extremely talented people like Alban de Fraipont and
At that time Adobe Flash was still a thing along with the dreaded IE6. I still miss the freedom Flash gave us at the time.
I also had the chance to learn CSS from the great and only Jérome Coupé. Seeing him explain CSS floats is a life changing event. I also met Pierre-Vincent Ledoux who made a short but powerful appearance as PHP teacher.
I started to work in 2009 for Emakina.eu where I developed a few "interactive experiences" in Flash. During that time I also met Quentin Delcourt and David Jakubowski with whom we endured a few Drupal websites.
In 2011, I got married with the wonderful and lovely Aurélie Moreels. I also
started to work for my dad's construction company Soluce. The company
grew fast and was lacking a proper way to track interventions. I
developped for them a ticketting system to tighten things up.
At that time, the PHP and JS ecosystem was booming so It seemd like I learned a new framework every week to keep up the pace. I learned Yii, BackboneJS, AngularJS, and discovered some little known PHP framework called Laravel. In parallel to my work at Soluce I also started to do freelance missions.
In 2014, I worked for a few months for Wepika, long story short, Prestashop ended up at the top of the stack of softwares I don't ever want to use ever again.
In 2016, I started to work for BetterStreet. I discovered the joys and pains of mobile development using React Native. I also modernized the citizen and admin frontends while putting a strong focus on UX. It was a pleasure to work and collaborate with Pierre Biezemans API's.
From 2019 to 2020, I joined Belighted and finally got to work with Simon Henrotte whom I have crossed path with a couple of time. Along my frontend developer job at Belighted, I started teaching "the dynamic web" at the IAD, crossing once again the path of Thomas Henrion & Jérome Coupé.
In 2021, I started a new chapter in my professional life by fulfilling an old dream: to create interactive applications for museums. This is how I have the great opportunity to freelance for Kascen and TinyBigStory.
In my free time, I enjoy taking care of my 3 children, having a good belgian beer while playing roleplaying games and discovering new itineraries to cycle to work.
