About

The Web Designer and Front-End Developer

In 2005, I discovered that the www was more than online games and I was introduced to the world of fandoms and fanart. For years, all I did was make blends, collages and wallpapers of my favourite celebrities, movies and tv shows.I taught myself about the wonders of HTML and CSS and started building simple websites using tables. I kept practicing and learning new things, like WordPress.

Something that started as creating basic home pages and making fan art, ended up becoming a passion and a dream.

In September 2010, I started the education Interactive Multimedia Design at Thomas More Mechelen, where I learned new skills, improved existing ones and where I was part of the wonderful practise enterprise Designosource. After a 3-month internship in London and an amazing final presentation, I graduated in July 2013.

I am currently working at a digital agency, called Friday, in London, UK.

The Fangirl

Being a so-called fangirl is what introduced me to the world wide web. After the release of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” I started to get more interested in the cast of the films. I looked around the web and somehow stumbled into making fan art.In 2008 I launched my first fansite, Twilight-Online.nl, with a good friend of mine from The Netherlands. Back then I was a huge fan of the Twilight books and I was delusional about the movies for quite a few years after. I attended the Belgian premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” and a fan event with Robert Pattinson & Ashley Greene for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1“.
At the moment I no longer consider myself a fan, but I’m still proud of the fansite. It was a great success!

Then in 2011, I started another fansite about The Hunger Games series, District12.be. Together with three other girls, I worked on bringing the latest news about the movies and cast to the fans.

The craziest, most fangirl-y thing I ever did, was camping out for the world premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” with a group of friends!

In the summer of 2014 I found another way to express my love for movies, tv, books and games and started cosplaying. I’ve been learning how to sew and craft in order to create my own costumes. You can have a look at my cosplay blogs to see some of the things I’ve done.
