About

I'm a student at Odisee Hogeschool in Ghent, studying Electronics-ICT since September 2014. My interests are music, programming and spending time with friends.

Music

I was introduced to all kinds of music by my father who had an extensive collection of CDs. Young me started to listen to Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, Nirvana, Gorki and so forth. At the age of 10, my parents bought me my first electric guitar and that’s when my desire for playing music myself began. My first band was formed with one of my best friends, just drums and guitar and myself singing. In highschool I switched drummers. These days I’m in a band called Earwax Removal Company and still going strong. Hit us up!

Programming

I have been learning to code since I was around 12 years old. The first thing I ever 'programmed' was a simple HTML page thanks to some tutorials I found online. When I was 13 years old I received a PlayStation Portable as a gift. Later on, I found that it was possible to crack this device to run your own software. At age 15-16 I moderated and wrote articles for the biggest PSP hacking forum of Belgium and the Netherlands PSP-Media.nl shoutout!. Through various PSP forums I managed to learn some C, assembler and other related languages. These events had a serious impact in my decision of my later career path.

Nowadays, I'm still programming in C#.NET, JavaScript, Python, etc. You can see several of my projects on GitHub.
