Digital Nomad

In 2015, I embarked on a journey abroad with my girlfriend, which brought us via Germany (2 years) through Spain (4 years) finally to Portugal. Here we live with our 4 cats, and it looks like we have found our final destination! All 6 of us have a great time here.

The climate of course, but also the natural environment, the food, the people, the laid-back atmosphere and life in general in Portugal are amazing! Amid our busy existence, this makes sure not to forget to live ;)

My digital journey into the wonderful world of the web began in late 2014, when my girlfriend asked me if it wouldn't be something to help her with online work. I was excited almost immediately, since I already had quite an affinity for everything that takes place online. In addition to all the technical stuff, I started to delve into the world of Internet marketing. I followed all the great online gurus, both national and international. This gave me a solid foundation for the work I do now, where the emphasis is still on the technical side.

I get my drive primarily from the fact that I love helping people. There is almost nothing more satisfying than seeing results that come from work you have contributed to! A great example is creating a webshop, for a store that was forced by COVID-19 measures to start selling online as well. Thanks to the well-functioning webshop, the restrictions were handled extremely well. 

This is perhaps another good example of why I love this work so much. Even if the world stands a little bit still, you can always keep going, even if you are at a distance from the customer. And I firmly believe that in the (near) future, working online is going to take on an increasing share. 

We decided almost immediately during the first lockdown to anticipate the COVID restrictions and open a web shop.  Since he also created our website, we called Ben, and he did an amazing job. We had no experience with web shops, and thanks to his experience and flexibility, our web shop was online in a very short time!

Ben is always available and thinks about the smallest details, in order to offer our products in the best way. This allowed us to continue offering our service despite the restrictions. We can more than recommend him, professional, incredibly fast, thoughtful  and knowledgeable.
