Who am I?

Hey there! Let's get straight to it! I'm Casper, a motivated web developer and student based in Belgium. I am an 18-year-old developer building cutting-edge web applications using the latest technologies such as React.js, Next.js, TypeScript, and much more for almost 5 years now.

I started back when I was a 14-year-old kid that had an extreme passion for creating stuff, building simple static web pages and expanding my CSS knowledge by recreating awesome designs. I've continued to grow and evolve as a developer, taking on new challenges and learning the latest technologies along the way.

When I'm not in full-on developer mode, you will find me blasting down a dirt track or the streets of my city. There's nothing quite like the rush of adrenaline that comes from going ultra-fast, and for me, there's no better way to experience that than on my trusty mountain bike. I also have a deep appreciation for music, listening to a wide range of genres that I thoroughly enjoy.
