Work Experience

2018-Present .NET consultant at Kapture NV.
2017-2018 Working at Delen Private Bank as backend programmer using Cobol, .NET and SQL among other Microsoft technologies.
2016-2017 Started a doctorate in Self-Adapting Computer Systems at KU Leuven and Linnaeus University. This included a selection procedure that spanned the last few months of 2016. I however quite quickly felt it wasn't for me. I didn't enjoy the very theoretical work with a focus on papers rather than code.
2012 Four month paid internship at Vanguard Games (Amsterdam, Netherlands). I worked as a programmer, mainly C# and C++, during the development of Halo: Spartan Assault and Game Gurus. Afterwards I did another two weeks as a vacation job as well.

Education

2014-2016 Master of Science, Applied Informatics (Major Artificial Intelligence), KU Leuven. Graduated Cum Laude with 80% for my thesis.
2013-2014 Physics, KU Leuven, first year only. Passed all my classes but decided not to continue in favor of the applied informatics master course.
2009-2012 DAE: Digital Arts and Entertainment (Major Game Development), Howest Kortrijk. Graduated Cum Laude.

Other Experiences
