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. 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:
- Social Media:
- HTML4 & HTML5
