About me

I am an interaction designer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands, with a focus on the story you want to tell or the experience you want for your user or audience.

I am an introvert chatterbox who loves socialising. I like to keep it light and airy, in both design and ambiance, but can be very serious. I enjoy researching and analysing a subject by finding its most interesting aspect and translating this into a no-nonsense design. In UX/UI design projects this means having attention for the user, their needs and their experiences. In storytelling this means sharing the discoveries you did during the research fase and letting people discover those for themselves, preferably in a surprising and/or playful way.

In my work I like to seek for collaborations with designers and other creative people. Want to collaborate? Just send me a mail.
