About me

multi-skilled innovative team spirit optimist problem solving oriented curious - hungry to learn likes things well done

Passionate of innovation, highly skilled and built upon a strong experience, I have always particularly loved building customized and innovative solutions that fit specific needs. Over the years I gained experience in multiple languages, platforms and hardware technologies and became a swiss army knife.

The broad knowledge I gathered during my business management master allows me to rapidly understand the needs of customers from various industries.

Nevertheless I particularly enjoyed managing Steel, where I had the opportunity to make the company and its employees grow just by bringing serenity, trust and empowerment.

I worked with Laurent during a period of about 5 to 6 years. Laurent was the 'driving force' for the development of IT tools in the area of Remote Maintenance and Intelligent Ordering Systems, which have proven to be extremely helpfull in our company. These tools are extremely reliable, remain very flexible for modifications or extension with new functionalities, and are used as 'example applications' for other divisions within our Company. Besides his technical IT skills, I really want to mention that Laurent is also a warm harted person, who has only an eye for the benifit of his clients. On many occasions, Laurent came with improvement proposals on our own ideas, which lead each time to a better product with improved functionalities. Thanks Laurent !!
