About me

I am a web developer and project manager with 5 years of experience in the creation of web sites, complex information systems, content management systems and mobile applications.

I have analytical skills and taste for good design. I am open minded, team oriented with international experience, and I can rapidly adapt to new working environments.

In the past years I have worked as web developer and web designer to finally find myself well fitted to act as a web project manager.

Experience

Web developer / Project manager

tremani.nl    jul. 2010 — aug. 2013

At Tremani, a web agency based in Delft, The Netherlands, I am involved in the production of web and mobile applications as a web developer and also as a Project Manager, within a team of designers and programmers.

I work on both small project as well as bigger information systems, for which I have to solve problems in groups and find the best solution for each case and client.

Creativity also has its place in my daily work, as I get involved in user interface conception or wireframing at the early stage of projects.

As a project manager I take part to the writing documents such as functional designs, offers, hours calculations.

Freelance Web developer / Web designer

fat-man-collective.com    jul. 2008 — jun. 2010

I worked as a freelance web developer and web designer, for some projects on my own and for others within a collective of digital creative freelancers, called Fat-Man Collective, in Barcelona, Spain.

It was a very challenging time for me, as I had to produce great work and at the same time I had to learn how to promote my own work and find the next projects to work on. I was involved in the definition of projects with other web agencies (like Actweb.fr or Spin-Interactive.com) or directly with my own clients (like Simply-Land.com, CTAE.org or Etikstudio.com).

As a freelancer within this collective I developed my skills in web project conception, design and development.

Hobbies

Cooking & friends

I like cooking with my wife, and welcoming family and friends at home.

Space

I like discussions about space and space technologies since my wife and some friends are space geeks! I even had the great pleasure to assist the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2009 in Deajon, South Korea by winning a web design contest.

Soccer

I enjoy playing soccer for real with friends, on my console, on my computer as a virtual trainer or even with the little puppets of table soccer!

Translation

Volunteering as a head translator for the french language of an online football manager game, Rocking Soccer.
