Hello, I’m Anthony, a Product Manager from Antwerp (Belgium). I've lived and worked on three continents, and have graduate degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Business Administration. That said, I enjoy nothing more than working with talented people at the cusp of engineering, product and sales where technology meets the market.

applications Engineer | Palo Alto
I acted as the primary liaison between Ozmo's first-tier consumer electronics customers and the engineering team – interfacing directly with product executives and overseas ODMs. Ozmo was acquired by Atmel in 2012.
PRODUCT manager | ANTWERP
I rallied the company behind a shared product vision & roadmap, and steered the engineering team to execute on it. I also engaged with beta customers to drive the adoption of Locotalk's disruptive technology.
Director of Operations | Antwerp
I help our talented team deliver the mobile workplace assistant of the future – by relentlessly improving operational processes, tooling, and communication.

Education is not preparation for life,
education is life itself.
For some reason I didn't like software all that much growing up. Moving to Silicon Valley quickly changed that. The world went digital before my very eyes and programming became the new literacy. I've been teaching myself different languages, tools and frameworks ever since.
html5 & css3
I've become a real frontend enthusiast and consider myself well-versed on the latest front-end development techniques.
You're looking at a Webflow site . I like that its controls map 100% to HTML and CSS. Combined with the ease of deployment it's a real winner.
Agile project management
I have extensive experience capturing product requirements & driving agile development using Atlassian's Confluence & JIRA.
I was introduced to SQL modeling & querying building basic web apps. I know enough to be dangerous.
I have a good grasp of Git, using it extensively both professionally and working on side projects.
It's simply an awesome tool. I've designed Locotalk's set of business applications entirely using Sketch.
Sublime Text 3 is my text editor of choice. I've made it my own to boost my productivity.
As an engineer I was taught to be the good kind of lazy. I tend to automate repetitive tasks using tools like Zapier.
digital ocean & AWS
I primarily use Meteor up to deploy Meteor apps to Digital Ocean. I've also played around with Amazon EC2 and S3.
It was at Flatiron School that I really fell in love with programming. Here I used Ruby extensively for three months. I'd like to use it more.
I've built a handful of web apps on Rails during my time at Flatiron School. Since then I've turned my attention to JS and it's ecoystem.
