Development & Accessibility
Basically I'm "that old guy at the front row".
Back in the nineties I made my first websites using notepad at our local library.
After pursuing a teaching career - and consequently working in logistics for four years - I decided to pick up my old passion for web and app development and enrolled at Howest to study New Media and Communication Technology.
I'm now a developer with a high interest in accessibility and with a background in education and history.
365 ECTS credits
Experience as team member
A small selection of personal projects.

A three.js google cardboard tutorial, created in collaboration with Tijl Bulcaen.
Originially a school project and a bit of joke, I presented this site in 2016 during Apps for
I never expected it to gain so much traction!
It's a very simple websites which uses open data to show you which neighbourhood in Ghent has a
surplus of men or women in your age category.
Hence making it more likely to find a date!
The site has been used to showcase open data and to promote future hackathons.
It's one of the reasons I applied for a job at Digipolis Gent.
Another school project, but a more practical one.
I used library data to show books based on destinations.
This allows you to travel without walking out your front door!
(And we all know it's dangerous business, Frodo, going out your front door.)
