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

Passion

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

Talent

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

Big names like Bill Gates, Satya Nadella, Elon Musk of course. But also, lots of people around me who are truly passionate by what they do, no matter if this is in law, science, health care, entertainment, …
That’s why I love being surrounded by enthusiastic people who love what they do because we can all learn from each other.

This makes me happy

My family, especially my wife, my dog and the baby that is currently underway.
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).

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.
