hero for hire!

Hi There!
This is my CV and personal portfolio.
Feel free to drop me a line!~ Etienne


Entrepreneur, Consultant, Researcher & Speaker: a communicative ESTJ with skills in IT, Innovation, HCI and Management. I am bold, analytical, positive, a very fast learner and I wield an unbeatable problem solving mentality. Most of my skills come from abstract thinking and a multi-disciplinary working experience. I am able to switch swiftly between scopes, allowing me to run a broad range of projects and improve the processes involved. A strong sense of quality control and design methodology, combined with creativity, communication and management skills just might make me a great asset to your organisation!


“I can say with confidence that Etienne is one of the strongest students that I ever encountered in these courses. His technical skills are far beyond those of almost all of his fellow students. It is rare to encounter a student who encompasses skills to excel both in the softer as well as in the exact sciences, but Etienne manages to do just that.”

Dr. Pieter Spronck | Associate Professor at Tilburg University

“Etienne’s group won two major awards: the “Best Design Phase” and “Best Prototype” of the year awards. He showed admirable design skills and his aesthetic sense is really unique.”

Dr. Suleman Shahid | Assistant Professor at Tilburg University

“I work with Etienne for quite some time now (about 5 years) and he keeps amazing me with his vision on on-line and off-line strategies. He is very passionate about his work, which reflects on the quality of the products and services he delivers. He will always go for the extra mile.”

ing. Stef Consten | Project leader at Case Builders

“I have no hesitation in recommending Etienne for any English-languae professional or scholastic endeavour for which he may apply. He achieved the distinction of scoring the highest grade given in the semester.”

Mark Vitullo | lecturer in English at Tilburg University

“Etienne is a reliable, driven and highly competent colleague who values high quality even in the details. His enthusiasm rubs off on you as he is motivated to reach goals, working around limitations of the team or circumstances.”

Drs. Stef Petit | Head of Comm. Marketing & Sales at Open University
