Hello, I'm Florian, 23 years old.
I graduated from high school in Belgium when I was 17 and then spent the next year in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA as a foreign exchange student which was a fun way of improving my english communication skills and meet some amazing people. During that year, I kept on improving my web development skills by taking web development and web design classes. During these classes, I learned about CSS but also Flash and Action Scripting. My skills were quickly noticed and I was asked to redesign a teacher's personal website as well as the school official website, which, at that time, was a big deal as 3000 students and their parents would go on that website frequently.
When I came back, I started business school. I was really interested in economics and entrepreneurship but something was missing... Some day I discovered the e-business program and immediately understood it was the path I always wanted to follow. The ideal mix between economics, management, entrepreneurship and a more technical point of view. At some point during those years, we had to create an innovative product or service and prepare everything as if we were going to market it. That's when we created NoteCampus, an online platform specifically made to meet the needs of students. The results were so promising that we decided to actually market the service after graduating.
After a 6 month internship at an SEO agency where I got to work on different systems and a final thesis about the creation of an SEO competition comparison tool (SERP Insight), I graduated Magna Cum Laude (82%), with an award, in September 2014. I'm now actively working on releasing the first version of NoteCampus and I've got plenty of ideas of potential futur projects. Improving people's life by using new technology is what I do best!
Ohh, I almost forgot something, I
like love live for challenges that's why, since January 2012, I'm also a volunteer firefighter and paramedic at my hometown fire department.

As part of my academic cursus I took part in an internship at eTeamsys SA in the SEO department. As every site is different, working on multiple client websites was a great opportunity to discover new systems.
