Koen Verstringe graduated as a control engineer in 1988 and as mechatronics engineer in 1990. Since then he works as a project engineer in a chemical company, doing projects in process control, automation and IT where real time data is involved.
As a kid he played mostly with Lego and Fishertechnik. He was more interested in discovering how toys were built by dismantling them than playing with them. He also was a member of the electronics workgroup of the public astronomical observatory Urania (www.urania.be). There he discovered the beauty of photography while doing meteor observations.
