I am a seasoned IT professional based in Erpe-Mere, Belgium. I'm usually known as the architect who quotes movies a lot.

My main focus is on helping development teams build great software, as architect, coach or team lead. I strongly believe in agile and lean, while not being a Scrum fundamentalist or agile hippie. Think Toyota.

With almost 2 decades of experience in software development and architecture, I have worked on numerous projects of all sizes, as architect, team lead, or developer. I have developed a knack for guiding teams to excellence, delivering business value while keeping things clean and simple. I generally prefer a no-nonsense, pragmatic approach over high principles.

In my current assignment as Head of Solution Architecture at Thomas Cook Group, I'm leading the community of solution and application architects across Europe and chairing the group architecture governance board.
