Who I Am?
let me tell you a story
I enjoy the feeling of progressiveness. I strive for a large output in a given time frame. While producing simple and valuable designs for the end user, I focus on simplicity and user friendliness. I like to improve sustainably, where the change will have a long lasting impact on your company. I am openminded, optimistic and multidisciplinary which makes it easy to integrate in larger teams. I have a wide range of skills, something that works perfectly in the communication field with other professions.
I enhance the design and production process of the OC1 – an omnidirectional speaker made off recycled concrete. Furthermore, I am responsible for public relations, marketing and the organisation of events, like the Dutch Design Week 2019.
I created several strategic designs and concepts for clients, under whom; Lego, Safran Cabin, ROC Mondriaan and FairBike. Furthermore, I was responsible for the company’s representation at the Dutch Design Week 2018.
During my short internship for approximately four weeks, I was involved in projects for; Sennheiser, Captron, and Bosch. Due to a lack of accommodation I went back to the Netherlands.
I co-founded DelftByCycle with three others, we are a bicycle tour and rental company that shows tourists and locals the secret spots of Delft. I designed and built the technical side of the company (eg. booking & administration system and website). Currently I work together with the township of Delft to promote a new kind of tourism, this project includes West Wal Delft.
In 2016 I started working as freelance designer, with the focus on webdesign and branding projects. I have worked with more than twenty clients including Open Monumentendag, gemeente Delft and SportHeroes.

When first asked to run the business for two weeks during the holidays, I got full understanding of the tasks involved around running a business yourself. Next to KistjevolSmaak! I also made a debut as employee at Ambacht and the Delftse Molen.
