About Me

Hello, I'm Thomas.

Originating from Herentals, a city in Belgium, I now live in Destelbergen which is right next to Ghent, together with my wife Ellen and our two sons, Arthur and Louis.

I'm an embedded software engineer working for Qorvo inc.

I enjoy walking, hiking, and running in nature. I'm a maker and electronics hobbyist, I like to build things.
