About me

Belgium has more to offer than tasty waffles, the best chocolate and excellent beer

My work in qualifying embedded system components, End-to-End testing of the complete system and performing root cause analysis has sharpened my analytical and structural working skills. Multiple projects in software testing have increased my understanding of software quality.

Collaborating with international colleagues has improved my social skills and my ability to function within an international context. I enjoy increasing my knowledge by undertaking new challenges and taking additional training.

Besides my work I am maintaining a website about travelling to the United States of America, AmerikaReis.info. Each year I make a trip through the US to gather information to publish on the website.

I live by the motto: Learning and succeeding by dreaming and doing.
