Since my childhood, I was intrigued by computers and IT in general. My father was a UNIX administrator at a big company here in Belgium, and he thought me the ins and outs of computing back in the day. I started programming in QBASIC on an old computer and loved the simple programming.

A few years later I dabbed into the web and started building websites, way before CMS’s were a thing. Back then we were proud to make them with iframes and tables. There was no mobile design at that time.

Again, years later, I started my own company where I focus on WordPress services, and I started visiting WordCamps in 2016. My first was in Antwerp where I met numerous new people and enjoyed my time thoroughly. It didn’t take long before I started visiting more WordCamps more often and met the awesome people here at Yoast.

Before I became a freelancer, I was a computer technician for some years. During that period I used to help people in the computer shop with problems and loved to help out. Seeing customers leave the shop with their problem(s) solved, is something I enjoyed. Therefore it was a logical step for me to apply for a remote position as a support engineer at Yoast.

When I’m not at the computer, I love to go for a run, travel (to a WordCamp), watch a movie or play a video game.
