I was born in 1988 in Belgium and also still live there. I speak Dutch, English, French and a bit of German and thanks to my studies I am also proficient in Latin and have some knowledge of Ancient Greek. I love metal music, and you can frequently find me at concerts and festivals, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to other genres. Art-wise, I mainly focus on photography, with a preference for animal/macro/nature photography although I diligently serve as photographer for my bf's band Everglow as well. Recently, I've been venturing into photomanipulation too and it's my secret wish to be able to design a CD booklet one day. I also regularly make tribal tattoo designs of animals in my own unique style. Other drawings, both digital and traditional are uploaded more sporadically, since my job rarely allows me enough time. I occasionally dabble in writing as well. The art aside, my hobbies are skiing, tennis, dancing, hiking, reading, watching loads of movies and playing with my dog Luca. I currently work at KU Leuven as an FWO-fellow (PhD) in English diachronic linguistics.
