Co-founder & (web)developer Headr
August 2018 - Now
After working freelance for a while, three friends (fellow students) and I decided to combine our skills. That's how Headr was born. Together we strive to automate and digitize business processes of small to medium businesses. That's why we build digital tools to alleviate administrative and other boring tasks. Using the client's input and our creative and technical experience, we propose a solution tailored to the client.
TEDxUHasselt organization volunteer
April 2016 - Now
All year I'm busy organizing the yearly TEDxUHasselt event. A team of about 10 students and PhD (volunteers) strive to bring an amazing event year after year. Aside from our main event, sometimes we take on a second event in a year: TEDxUHasseltSalon. This is a smaller event about a more specific theme.

CoderDojo coach volunteer
March 2017 - June 2018
At most once a month I spent my team as a coach at CoderDojo Hasselt as volunteer. CoderDojo organizes workshops to teach children and teenagers the basics of computational thinking. At CoderDojo Hasselt, we offer Scratch, Lego Mindstorms and Minecraft (redstone and mods). As of March 2018, we also started teaching textual programming with Python.
IT-Department Greenyard Prepared
On the IT department of Greenyard Prepared, I joined the system admin group for the summer. This group takes care of all IT infrastructure. With tasks ranging from maintaining and repairing hardware, managing the network and servers, providing support for other employees and solving various problems, everyone was busy at all times. My tasks evolved from smaller support cases to tackling entire cases by myself. Working with this very specialised company has taught me the value of optimising workflows.
Helping to record a dance show, a theatre... Without any experience with professional camera equipment, I went on to help a friend who was in an emergency situation and suddenly short staffed. I gained a small knowledge of (handling) cameras, do-s and don't-s for lighting, recording angles... But most importantly: satisfied clients and a friend back on track
Factory worker Greenyard Prepared
Summers of 2015-2016
The work at Greenyard Prepared, formerly known as Noliko, alternated between quality checks at a belt, pouring (managing speed and amount of products on the belt), controlling the depalletiser (machine) and solving problems with bad packaging. This much variation in my work obliged me to pick up new skills extremely fast. With the variation in work, came variation in hours: I worked night shifts, regular hours and alternating day shifts.
Dishwasher Den Eik
Summer of 2014
Long hours, working fast without sacrificing quality (during rush hours) and preparing as well as I could during calm periods. Thoses are the things that my experience at Den Eik has taught me.
