I'm a Belgian java consultant with over 6 years of experience in various branches (banking, automotive, telecommunication, etc). I'm very passionate about clean design, proper unit testing and nice hand-written code.
In my free time I compete in the Belgian indoor karting championship. This is an individual competition with rental karts where you gain points on your best and average laptime. This way you constantly have to push yourself to perform as best as you can. (techniques for this can both be used in sports and in your professional career) The level of competition is extremely high: Belgium has multiple former world champions and sometimes foreign pilots also compete in races.
