My name is Filip Maertens, born in 1978 in a small town called Tielt (Belgium).
I’m a tech founder and product developer. These two words mean that I have an outspoken passion for technology and coding, while being an independent-minded person.
With over 15 years of experience, I am often consulted as a cyber-security expert. I have worked in the military, intelligence, critical infrastructure and banking industry; both in engineering and project management roles. If you believe I can be of any help, drop me a line.
I have a soft spot for dogs and everyone that has one hell of a comeback story.
In my free time, I’m tinkering with sensors, hardware, and machine learning. My hobbies are Crossfit and mountaineering.
You can find me on stage as a public speaker, or behind the scenes as a coach and friend to other founders.
If you’re looking to contact me, simply send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow me on Twitter at @fmaertens.
With this blog, I want to share my learnings, experiences and personal opinions.
