Jan De Coster

Jan De Coster grew up with a vivid fascination for physics, science fiction stories and hacking stuff. In college he realized that all the stories around science were often far more appealing than the theory behind them. In the mid 90's he started on his first multimedia productions en eventually evolved to working in advertising, where he invented stories and games for online campaigns.
