About me

I'm a web developer with a focus on the front-end, based in Brussels (Belgium). I'm highly proficient in the technologies that are at core of the modern web experience : HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I also have an interest and attention to design, accessibility and performance. I believe that very strong knowledge of these foundations is essential to being a good front-end developer, and everything else can be learned as needed.

I feel that a good user interface is like a joke : you shouldn't have to explain it. I value simplicity and intuitiveness over complex and overly engineered solutions.

I see open communication, empathy and inclusivity as the essential parts of a well-functioning team.


Looking for keywords ? I have project experience with the following tools and methodologies :

Bash, Git, HTML, CSS, Sass, JavaScript (including ES6+), TypeScript, React, Redux, Next, Gatsby, Vue, GraphQL, Jest, Node, Webpack, Rollup, Parcel, Gulp, Babel, ESlint, CI/CD principles, Gitlab CI, decoupled architectures & headless CMS, content modelling, Agile methodologies, ...
