Welcome to my personal little space on the World Wide Web. I created this website not only to show my work as an industrial designer, but also to give an impression of me as a person. Creativity always ran through my veins. I had the cliché ‘creative kid’ childhood: drawing (on stuff that I shouldn’t), playing with Legos and building tree houses.

In 2009 I decided that I would take this passion to the next level, and started studying Industrial Design and Engineering in Delft. In 2012 I received my Bachelor’s degree, I graduated with a 9 for my Bachelors Final Project. After that, I combined the two Masters Integrated Product Design and Design for Interaction. to finally graduate in April 2017 with a 9 for my graduation project.

From bike lights to coffee-machines, from cheesy love poems to phone apps, from a vacuum cleaner to jewelry: I have created a lot of different stuff over the years. Some of which can be found on my 'work' page. So, please, have a look, or scroll down to learn more about me!

In 2010, I started to play rugby in Delft. The moment I played my first match, I knew this was different than all the other sports I’ve ever played. It is remarkable how a sport can teach you valuable traits, like resilience, discipline and respect, and help form one’s character. The action photos however taught me I have some serious work to do on my photogenic-skills.

The rugby-club also gave me the chance to broaden my skills even further by offering me the chance to be part of the board in 2011. During this year, I acted as the secretary of the club. I also committed to other roles within the club's committees as well as two years of being the first team's captain.

My passion for the sport was rewarded with being selected to play for the Dutch National Student team during 2015-2016.
Listening to music provides me with a daily dose of joy, energy and inspiration, but making music gives me even greater satisfaction. Armed with my saxophone and the ability to get some sound out of it, I have had great experiences and learned a lot while making music. I love the kick of performing with my friends in front of a big crowd.

I also love to be part of the dancing crowd, especially on music festivals. On a blue Monday I even attempted to learn how to salsa dance (which my stubborn hips didn’t quite allow me to master). Sadly, nowadays my poor attempts at salsa only serve as a party-trick that rarely manages to impress.
