I love to solve problems, debug, create tools, learn new things, bring ideas to life and get better at it.
I started developing around the age of 16 using Visual Basic 6. Did quite a few things such as a chess game that connected to an online server, a FTP client, a peer to peer file sharing app and a 3D Matrix screensaver emulating the matrix rain effect.
I used to share my code on various development websites such as planet source code and vbfrance.
Then Flash entered my life. It became a love story that lasted as long as it could. I worked for plenty of different clients and agencies as a flash developer. Mainly promotional and visual stuff. On the personal side, I started developing games (as well as tools that helped me develop them), a thing I have always wanted to do and tried to integrate as much as possible into my professional life. With that idea in mind and with 2 other guys, we started a collaboration that later became what is now reed.be, a web agency. We worked on quite some projects together. I'm no longer part of it.
Since a year, I started investigating AIs such as ChatGPT and Midjourney. I build a couple of tools to help me and close relatives in their day to day tasks. I find it quite fascinating and yet, still too limited. But this is only the beginning.
Development of the promotional website for a blockbuster video game called Prototype, by Activision.
The idea was to allow people to connect to the website using their facebook account. The facebook connect feature had just made its appearance. We then integrated people's data (information & pictures) right into the video game trailer. This was probably the first time ever such a thing was being done. The website got international attention. Big brands such as Microsoft US contacted us.
