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 technical writer.

Since around 2000 I’ve been involved in IT projects for different clients all over Europe.

  • 2008: co-founded Krimson, Belgium’s first all-Drupal agency (became Wunderkraut Belgium, now part of Appnovation).
  • 2009: I moved to Paris to head a Drupal team at AF83, a French web agency, which spun off its Drupal team into CommerceGuys/
  • 2010: 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.
  • 2014: I stepped back from managing Banatanova's Senegal office and took on an advisory role.
  • Currently: Head of Training Services at Code Enigma.
