Hi there!

I am a UX Designer with more than 3 years of experience working on projects across different disciplines: e-commerce, technology, culture, education, tourism, corporation and etc.

Besides my regular work I have my own projects with small businesses and NPOs as a web designer and web developer. I am also a Dutch registered architect.

I believe the first step to a great solution always comes from understanding our users. My architectural background not only skilled me in shaping aesthetic forms, but also taught me the importance of empathising with the future owner of the house before drawing the first line.

When I am not designing, you will likely find me wandering in the woods enjoying the fresh air.
