So who am I?
Well, I graduated as an insurance broker in 2005 and have been working as such until last year. It was the year of my 30th birthday, and I began to wonder if I wanted to sell insurance for the rest of my life, whether or not I wanted to take over my dad's business.
After a long time of pondering over it (and some R&R in New York City with some good friends) I decided to follow my heart and start something different, something that would fit me more. So I decided to call it quits in the insurance business, and go for a job where I can find lots more pleasure in, one I'd absolutely love!
And thus the search began; what do I want my future to look like? Before starting my insurance broker studies I've studied one year of advertising design in Antwerp, and I've always been intrigued by design, art, music & technology. How does this translate in my day to day life? Well: I am a DJ for over 10 years, I organize small parties and design its posters, play the guitar, bass guitar & a little bit of saxophone, I'm a beginning producer in Ableton, love to visit festivals and concerts, like to go to exhibits/museums and I like to take pictures whenever I take my DSLR camera with me (or my iPhone, although some photographers will call that blasphemy) and I've got a soft spot for new technologies/gadgets.
Putting all these pieces together it became clear: I wanted to do something more creative. I discovered, after talking to a career counselor, that I could combine 2 of my passions (design and new technologies) in a professional career: Web design!
Since that decision everything went quite fast: I had to take some admission tests and got admitted at CVO Heusden Zolder where I followed a web design crash course whereafter I did a very educative internship at Aroma.be. And since then I've officially graduated as web designer. But web design doesn't really say anything, does it?
Let me sum up what my skills are:
- HTML4 & HTML5
- Social Media:
