About me

I am an Interaction Designer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

As a designer I enjoy telling stories and through my work I try to provide insight into a concerning topic in a clear and simple way. I enjoy researching and analyzing a subject by finding its most interesting aspect and translating that into a no-nonsense design. In this way I can share the discoveries I did during my research and let people discover those for themselves.

Recurring themes throughout my work are natural phenomena and the influence of digitalization on our daily lives.
