About me

In love with technology,

passion for people.

A purpose-driven creative with a passion for people & technology, who aims to create an impact as a utilitarian designer. 

Born in the Netherlands, and raised in a creative family. In this way, I was always inspired by art, films, music, theater and curious about design in all its ways. Cycling to the city of Utrecht or sitting between two Mexicans in a rickety bus. I have always been curious to discover new things and people. Interest in the people sitting next to me or observing how people move in crowded streets and stations.

While traveling, I found out that I am interested in technology and people. That way I can think about concepts for hours, when something fascinates me or when I run into something. These problem solver properties came in handy during my travels & work. I find doing research into the behavior of people with regard to technology extremely interesting and the interaction that takes place.
