If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough


New technologies.
Solving complex problems and hiding them behind a layer of simplicity.
Getting to the bottom of things when they get my attention.


Connecting the dots.
Being creative in building solutions or fixing problems.
Explaining (complex) stuff to others, at their level of understanding.

My source of inspiration

True visionaries that went against the stream and did everything to try to accomplish what they envisioned. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, … to name just a few.

Besides those ‘great’ names, I also find a lot of inspiration in people that think outside the box and who are super creative in solving issues. Walt Disney Imagineers for example.

This makes me happy

My family, especially my wife and our son Gust.
I love food, ranging from gastronomic dining to a good pack of fries with mayonnaise from the ‘frituur’.
Some casual gaming (Xbox & Nintendo Switch) from time to time.
Experimenting with new technologies and creating solutions that add value.

My ultimate Epic Shit moment

2 things come to mind: speaking at Techorama (2016 & 2018) and receiving my first MVP award (2017) and my first MVP Summit (2018).

The song that gets me started

Tough question, I like a very wide range of music, very much dependent on my mood…
Anything Queen, Chemical brothers, Daft Punk, Hans Zimmer, 90’s Eurodance, retro, Bonzai Classics, … just to name a few artists and genres.
