Hi! My name is Jens.

I help clients make sense of emerging technologies and how these will impact their business.

Currently working as a Technology Consultant at PwC Belgium, I help clients transition to the Linked Data paradigm,
introducing new technologies and IT architectures while closing the gap between business and IT.

Over the years, I have worked as a web designer, a developer and a technology consultant.
