About me

My name is Fred, I'm a creative front-end developer with a focus on user experience. My interest for all web related things started during my graphic design studies and I've found unlimited possibilities to keep learning ever since.

I like Javascript and CSS and working with related toolsets and frameworks such as Vue.js, Typescript, SCSS, task runners, package managers and version controll systems. Reusable code, cross browser compatibility and component based development make me happy, just like swimming, motorcycling en skiing.

The past few years I started a couple of personal projects. These projects satisfy me in both my creative and technical needs. They allow me to explore new technologies and set high quality standards without having to make any compromises. A selection of my most beloved and known projects are listed below.
