I'm a 33 year old designer-with-a-beard from Amsterdam. I am Social, creative and trust feelings and gut instinct more than rules or logic.

personal info
my story

In January of 2015, I came on board as a creative lead at a cross-platform banner production agency, Das Banner. After a year and a half at Das Banner, I felt it was time to branch out on my own.

In my spare time, you’ll most likely find me at my barber, either enjoying a coffee, freshening up or modeling for their latest campaigns. There’s a good chance you may also find me on a soccer field, playing on amateur-level for SV de Meer.

resume

know who I am

Going back to the beginning, we have to travel up north to Heerenveen. In 2008, I started working for SuperConnie Software, an educational software company. There’s where I learned ActionScript and wrote my first pieces of code. After three years, I went in search for a new challenge. I found it in Amsterdam.
