Turning on the lightbulb with superpowers. Experience created with Arduino and Kinect using motion capturing software. 



I am an Interaction designer experienced in User-centered design and design strategy. Born and raised in the Netherlands and living in Stockholm. I hold a BsC in Industrial Design with the focus on interactive systems and products. Currently, I am pursuing my Master in Interaction Design with the focus on User-centered Design from Umeå Institute of Design. 


Too me, the design process should contain a healthy balance between methodologies and creativity. On one hand, design is strategic. Whenever we are designing products and systems for people and brands, we can not simply design in the blind. We need to deeply understand the current situation of our users, changes in society, trends and brand values. Only then we can create a perception of what the future holds for us.

Personally, I like dealing with these complex challenges in projects. It requires a bright and critical mind to be able to see through the complexity. At the end of this process, the outcome will have a deeper impact, striving for transformation in both society and brands.

On the other hand, design is about blind creativity, being able to close your eyes and take leaps of faith. Only when you blindly trust yourself, I believe one can come up with true innovative concepts at new dimensions. Being able to find the perfect balance between methodologies and pure creativity is what makes me striving forward.


I would love to connect with you to talk about our future.
