"Born and raised in Belgium, I have been infographist. In 94, I worked in one of the first companies dedicated to web content and created from scratch what would be called later a CMS. From then, I developed my skills, including web design, web development and network management). Web design remains my main activity (my side activity being songwriting and performing), and as for now, I developed and maintain a few dozens of websites for several clients. When the first virtual worlds began to appear, I saw it as the next replacement of online forums, very popular by this time. And when real-time 3D rendering was added, like in Second Life, I embraced it as the next evolution of the worldwide web (yes, it's a slow move) and created Speculoos World in 2011. The initial goal was to introduce Belgian people to this new environment, but it slowly became a more generic project. For the needs of Speculoos grid, I developed some in-house solutions, like an installation setup for Debian, enhanced some existing solutions, like a unified set of helper scripts, and made some small contributions to OpenSim core."
