I am a 37-year-old all-round freelance shell nerd and web developer interested in tackling non-trivial problems.
I enjoy learning and teaching new tools and technologies.
Feed me weird things.
You can reach me at jan @ @tervelo.com or on +32 479 611 603. I live in Ghent, Belgium, but am willing to travel for short assignments.
Do not use this e-mail address or telephone number for marketing or third-party recruiting purposes. Once again, for the thicker recruitment agencies: do not contact me. Do not store my data in your databases. In fact, just close this page right now.
