Education

I was born 23th september 1990, lives in a little town called Ciney, located in Belgium. I speak 3 languages: French, Dutch and English. The last 2 years of high school I studied IT Management. After that I went to Haute Ecole Albert Jaquart university to follow "Webdesign & multimedia". I graduated top of the section with a special mention of the jury.

Experience

Quickly after, in august 2013, I started working at a top webdesign agency called Dogstudio' where I worked as a full time php developer for 14 months.

But, looking to improve my skills to the next level I had to make the hard decision to leave Dogstudio and look for a new opportunity. In December I joined Maatwebsite, an other web agency which uses Laravel as a daily tool/framework.

In February I started moving to a part time freelancer part time employee schedule. I quickly had more demand than time available for new projects, this is the reason I went full time freelancer in May 2015.
