Sebastiaan Jansen

I've been expecting you ...

Greetings, my name is Sebastiaan Jansen, aka Dr. Skunk, a 27-year-old employee of the Flemish broadcaster VRT. I work there as a creative developer for the Innovation department where I work mostly on full-stack rapid prototyping. Most projects are built using a combination of React, Node.js and Python. These projects are used in almost every department in VRT, including "De Warmste Week", MNM and VRT NWS. Some of these projects are: Marconi, CPN and Fandango.

For leasure I spend a lot of time at my hackerspace Area 3001 where I make use of the 3D printers and lasercutters to build all sorts of Maker projects, which you can see in my Instagram feed. In the few hours I have left I do improv theatre at Preparee.

So what's the deal with your hair?

So right, I get asked this a lot. I have an autoimmune skin condition called vitiligo which makes patches of skin lose their pigment. Sometimes the hair on that spot becomes white, which you can see on my head. So no, it's not contagious and no, I don't dye my hair.
