My biggest professional synth is my insatiable thirst for knowledge: I’m greedy to dig into something new or take on a challenge at any moment. Luckily the pragmatic side of me tempers this greed by requiring meaning above all and puts my feet back on the ground before getting hyped away.
I know my way around networking, cross platform system / infrastructure design & administration and my first love : web development (fascinated by full stack, but most experienced with backend development). I have broad spectrum of experience with very different topics, but I did never have the opportunity to dig into something specific long enough to dare to call me a specialist at anything. Luckily, to satisfy my knowledge hunger, I could walk the path of being a generalist.
Troubleshooting – a love-hate relationship
As I prefer to learn & create, I never liked fixing stuff & troubleshooting much, but bearing the responsibility of customers to keep happy, made me face & appreciate this part of the game as well. My patience, persistency & down to earth attitude have proven to be of good use to get the hang of it.
The outgrowing challenge
Running this in small & growing team is my biggest challenge though, more than any technicality has even been. It made me face a whole new ground: to find and keep the delicate balance between working with a number of people and being a team. The peculiarities of people couldn’t be more contrary to machine predictability – which has always been a pillar to me, given my tech roots. Just a new challenge, right? ^^
My time-efficient and thrifty pastimes
In my non-existing spare time, I like to create something using just words and punctuation, more commonly known as writing. I also enjoy anything beautiful, I have a personal taste for complex symmetrical simplicity!
I’m also an Airbnb Superhost in Antwerp, which I love doing. Checkout my Airbnb listing!
