I was born on April 22, 1981 in Tielt (Belgium). At the age of 18, I graduated in mechanical design at the local technical school. I then went to study in Ghent. At Sint-Lucas art school I got passionate about graphical design. As a student I also discovered my organizational talent. That’s how I started working in the event and catering sector. After several temporary jobs in this sector, I opted for a permanent job as logistics employee at Lannoo publishing house. After 5 years, I started working in stand construction and gathered experience as a builder, warehouse keeper and technical point of contact. In 2017, I became an independent freelancer in order to be able to combine my job in stand construction with graphic design, event organization and carpentry.
