I'm an avid traveler, always open to learn from other cultures and intrigued by cross-cultural movements and tribes.
Sound, music & dance is one of my passions, as I find it the best way to translate, give and recieve energy.
Besides being a developer I'm also a sound healing practicioner, ecstatic dance dj and trance dance facilitator. You can find more about these activities on my other website Harmonics.be.
My career as an IT consultant started in 1999. The first 14 years I worked as an employee for several IT service companies, and since 2013 I'm working as a freelancer.
By now I have build up more then 24 years of experience in web development and full stack development.
I have strongly specialised in full stack java development on portal platforms. Since 2006 this was focussed on IBM WebSphere Portal, while working for IBM.
In 2013 I decided to start freelancing, and changed my focus to open source platform, like Liferay Portal.
The last few years I got excited about Vue.js and I have build or migrated several websites with Nuxt 3 and Nuxt Content. You can read more about that in this blog post about Nuxt 3
You can find a detailed overview of the clients and technologies I've worked with on my career page.
