I am a creative, hands-on, hybrid profile. I like designing and crafting solutions from start to finish. Talking to people, listening, trying out solutions and starting from scratch are the things I love to do. Also, I like electric skateboards.
Designing and implementing great user experiences and the User Interface are my day-to-day activities. On a professional level, I strive towards an environment where creativity is stimulated and rewarded. With experience with user interface design, research and function analysis, I consider myself an appropriate candidate to take on a variety of tasks.

Jan 2018 – Feb 2021
KBC, via Ordina Belgium
User Experience Design, User interfaces & functional analysis for a single employee journey platform – “Francis”.
Francis has grown from a smartphone application of 10.000 users who voluntarily installed it on their phone, into a web version that gathered 15.000 unique employees – helping them every day. The platform has grown into a strategic asset of the organisation and an example of the Employee Experience culture.
At first, I’ve helped to design and analyse an app. Later on, that evolved into a web platform that is now the default employee assistant for every KBC employee. I created the entire design for the app and web platform; from business analysis, to workshops, marketing assets, copywriting, ideation, wireframes and user interfaces. Furthermore, I was the lead functional analyst within the team.
Second, I had a strong hand in corporate presentations, partner demo’s and product pitches and talks within – and outside the organisation. Lastly, I was responsible for generating ideas, facilitating scrum ceremonies, analysing use cases and requirements.
Throughout the entire Francis project, you could say I was involved in almost every step; on a functional and visual level.

“Business analysts are often celebrated for their analytical skills. Improving processes, implementing new software, and so on. However, I argue that analysts should be more like designers.
This was my story of thinking like a designer, doing design thinking and how to infect a large organisation with this mindset. Blogpost too!
