About me

After gaining 2 years of experience in web development in Brussels, Belgium, as a volunteer in the French V.I.E. program (Volontariat International en Entreprise), I now have a work permit (IEC) in Canada. I am always trying to continue to grow all the while contributing to all kinds of projects. I've had the chance to work on both back and front ends of JavaScript projects for both desktop and mobile using the MEAN stack. I've also developed, integrated and deployed hybrid mobile applications with Ionic and Cordova.

Having worked over a year Agile/Scrum environments, I am completely convinced applying development methodologies is essential to a healthy workplace, team morale and productivity all around.

  • I am result-driven and organized
  • I insist on code quality
  • I am a fast learner and adapt quickly
  • I get things done

Outside of work, I'm a curious guy who loves the outdoors and nature in general. I enjoy sports, cooking and baking, going to the movies, travelling and discovering new cultures.

Nature & Travelling

I'm very admirative of mother nature in all her work.
I enjoy a good trek or hike, and nature is often on my to-do list when travelling!

One of my goals in life is to discover different cultures and unusual places around the globe. There are so many things to see in life, and I hope I get the chance to cover all continents. My last trip was Iceland in the summer of 2017. Here are some thing I want to do:

  • Australia / New Zealand
  • Tokyo 2.0
  • Aurora Borealis
