About me Contact me



Hi, I'm David.

I'm an ambitious IT professional based in Herent, Belgium. As a freelance project manager, I've had the pleasure of working on challenging IT projects, at home as well as abroad, both for software development and IT infrastructure projects and migrations.

In day to day business I take a deep dive into the trenches of IT to shape business cases, work and product breakdown structures, project plans and progress reports. All to get to the objective of delivering actual business value through IT projects.

My main expertise is Microsoft's Office 365, which is pretty much the most well-rounded, cloud-based productivity suite money can buy today. Great progress has been made on the platform over the past few years, and I'm both confident and excited about what the development roadmap holds for the future. Whether you're representing an SME or a global enterprise - if you want to shift to the cloud while working smarter and better than ever before: this is it. And I'd be happy to lead both your migration to the platform, as well as coordinate your user adoption.

In the past, I've been a full-time consultant at Tobania from 2012 untill 2017, where I've been assigned to a plethora of engagements as application consultant, functional analyst and project lead, all within technologies belonging to the Microsoft stack.

But leading projects is not all I do: another passion of mine is performance marketing: converting online visitors to valuable sales leads and clients using a combination of technical ingenuity and a commercial mindset. A challenging environment, yet very rewarding as well.
