Don’t even get me started

Driven by empathy and curiousity for people

How people think, feel and act has always had my interest. And nothing gives me greater joy than to make people happy. That is why I consider it as my mission to create digital products that people love. Like everyone, I have had my own share of ups and downs. Constantly developing who I am and what I stand for. If you hire me, you don’t just hire a skilled designer but also the person behind the job.

Things to know about me

Interactive Art Director program

Hyper Island, Stockholm (Sweden)

Hyper Island is a school that designs learning experiences that challenges individuals to grow and stay competitive in an increasingly digitized world. No to books, exams or teachers. Yes to real clients and projects, self-reflection, group dynamics and leadership.

Creativity

Photography, poetry and writing

It is important for me to express myself creatively. Throughout the years I have found ways that work really well for me. I love photography (travel and portrait), I write poems every now and then (currently working on a bundle) and I’m also working on a kids book.

Traveling the world

Discovering landscapes and cultures

Having lived in Stockholm and New York City fueled my desire to see more of the world. In 2017 I traveled the world for 7 months. Throughout the years I have been on several adventurous trips and I love to hike for hours and capture the beauty of the world with my camera.

Aandacht

Podcast

A Dutch podcast about topics that you as a designer have to deal with, but never really have the time to think about. In collaboration with Stephan Kleian. With our podcast, we want to provide an accessible insight into how we as designers view everything that has to do with design, creativity and strategy.

Brands and agencies I have worked with

I’m grateful to have worked for amazing brands and digital agencies, nationally and internationally.
