About me

I'm an avid traveler, following the sunshine around the world, always open to learn from other cultures and intrigued by cross-cultural movements and tribes.

Music is one of my passions, it's a way for me to translate energy and share emotions. Listen to some favourite songs that make my day.

 

My career

 

My career as an IT consultant started in 1999. The first 14 years I worked as an employee for several IT service companies, and since 2013 I'm working as a freelancer.

I have strongly specialised in full stack java development on portal platforms.
Since 2006 this was focussed on IBM WebSphere Portal, as I was working for IBM.
Later, when I decided to start freelancing, I changed my focus to open source and Liferay Portal.

The way I love to work

The way I love to work

it works for me
 

Agile & Scrum

Because the requirements will always evolve once the users are playing with the software.
Scrum is a proven way to control this process of iterative development.

Pair programming

The best way for knowledge sharing between senior and junior developers.

Remote

Working remotely in my own work environment allows me to focus better and be more productive

A clear role

Knowing what's expected from me will allow me deliver beyond those expectations
