I am an User Experience Director & Interaction Designer with 15+ years experience designing for digital services, interactive applications, websites, commercials and print.
Currently I'm based in Amsterdam, working as User Experience Director at Nomads. Previously I was Senior Art Director at Jung von Matt Berlin. I started my career as a web-designer, developing websites in Flash 5 back in 2000.
My experience in classic advertising as well the digital space allows me to concept quickly, work efficiently and act pro-actively.
I love making things and I love to learn. This results that my skill set it very broad and that I can take on many different roles: from creating concepts, designing, prototyping, coding and even project managing. However there is nothing more that I enjoy than to work and build within teams.
I get excited about all gadgety things and all things digital. At the same time I really value the experience of old fashioned things like etching and printing things on paper. I love to run, but one fun part of it is of course tracking all data from my runs and synchronizing those with other data from my gadgets to analyze them. Finally I am a big gamer and as games teach us a lot about user experience – both bad and good ones – I am always happy to do research.
