WELCOME TO MY HOMEPAGE!!

Hi, my name is Michaël Samyn. I'm an ex-artist and hypermedia designer from Ronse, Belgium. I don,'t have any hobbies really except those people pay me for, so I can't consider them hobbies, KWIM? ;)

So here's my resume, enjoy it!
Yes, that's me holding my son Marcel and walking around at the zoo with my parents (the picture was taken by my girlfriend Veerle).
