Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

I've worked with Drupal as an all-round developer since Drupal 5 (2007) and use my experience mostly as an application architect, team lead or infrastructure builder.

I'm generally available for travel but only accept long-term assignments if the bulk of the work can be performed remotely. My current timezone is GMT+1.

For the last 14 years I’ve been involved in IT projects for different clients all over Europe. In 2008 I co-founded Krimson, Belgium’s first all-Drupal agency (merged into Wunderkraut). In 2009 I moved to Paris to head a Drupal team at AF83, a French web agency (spun off into CommerceGuys) and in early 2010 I moved to Senegal to co-found Bantalabs (merged with Rezonova into Bantanova), an open source development and training company with offices in France, the UK and Senegal.

Mid 2014 I stepped back from managing Banatanova's Senegal office and took on an advisory role. As of July 2014 I'm available as as freelance Drupal architect, developer, troubleshooter and trainer. Ping me.
