What I'm good at

I’m a freelancer web developer & designer and system administrator based in Belgium and The Netherlands. I’m a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter. Nowadays, I prefer to make music with the friends, not for the industry.

I am a confident and creative designer who is self-motivated, self-sufficient and comes to you with a strong background in both print and digital media. I have a comprehensive understanding of Photoshop, Indesign, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and the latest design technologies.

I’m a designer/programmer with 18 years experience of graphical design / 8 years experience of web and leading web projects, using PHP, MySQL, HTML, XHTML, CSS and JavaScript.

I design websites with the aim of conveying conceptual clarity and simplicity, user-research and visual design.

I deliver perfection and I strive for the best user experience. I believe in speed. I love my clients and I don’t believe in sky-high prices.

After a thorough analysis and inventory of the existing situation, I search for the best and most upgradeable / scalable solution for you.
