Hello, I'm Angelo, and it's a pleasure to connect with you.
I'm a dedicated Drupal developer with a knack for transforming designs into fully functional websites. Beyond development, I'm passionate about ensuring projects are user-friendly and optimized for search engines.
My expertise covers:
- The Foundation
Crafting the structural design of websites, including sections, pages, and content types.
- Front-end Magic
- Back-end Mastery
Navigating the CMS and its interactions with the visual front-end.
- The Aftermath
Improving search engine rankings, diving into Google Analytics, optimizing usability, and more.
When I'm not immersed in the web world, you'll find me on social platforms like LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram. I'm also an active contributor to the Drupal community, having developed my own module, TouchTouch, and co-maintaining others like Social Share and Fortissimmo. Though not as active as I'd like anymore due to being short of time.
In addition to Drupal, I've dabbled in managing Magento webshops, creating extensions, and theming. But, like any other individual, I'm not all about work.
Born in 1989 and raised in Kortrijk, Belgium, I've always been one to tackle challenges head-on. My journey into web development began with learning basic HTML in school in 2007, before learning CSS and PHP on my own in the following years, followed by diving into Drupal as a true professional.
As for "Blacksnipe," it's a bit of an alter-ego stemming from my past and my fondness for the color black.
When I'm not in front of a computer, I'm in the garden or tending to vines. I ventured into winemaking and vine maintenance since 2016, eventually earning my stripes as a fully qualified winemaker.
By 2025, I'll have completed four wine courses spanning different .
This revamped blog will be a collection of front- and back-end insights from my everyday experiences. I may also sprinkle in some big news, life-changing events, philosophical musings, and tidbits about winemaking.
It's been quite a journey crafting this "About Me" page, and I'm grateful if you've read it all. If you'd like to connect or feel I missed something, don't hesitate to reach out via the contact page.
