Being educated in arts & design and through 18 years of experience I am able to build a project from start to finish, individually and as part of a team. I’ve been working on a diverse range of projects, in cooperation with agencies and directly for clients.

I’m always on the lookout for new challenges. I enjoy working with other independent thinkers to complement each other in order to create something that is greater than the sum of the individual parts, and always dedicated to go the extra mile to accomplish that.Feel free to contact me (:


Ever since I graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 1997 I have been working as an all-round art director / graphic designer.

My main focus has been developing distinctive concepts and designs, building strong brands and campaigns. I’ve been doing a variety of AV projects such as time documents about young adults, brand videos, TVC's and VJ shows at brand events, award shows and clubs. I find great pleasure in working on text, especially short copy as I love words, I love typography. I enjoy creating experiences and connecting people. Besides commissioned work I keep doing independent projects as a playground for myself and like-minded people.
