About me

During the past years my wish to make a positive change to the world has been growing constantly. During my travels I have seen polluted nature and very poor people. As a designer I feel the responsibility to make a positive change. I want to protect nature. I want to protect people. I feel the responsibility to make products that are sustainable, fair and focussed on the users.

During my design process I try to consider all people and needs involved. I like to organize processes to ensure this. I always hope that everyone is happy when the design is finished.

I am always looking for new challenges and have many interests. During my Bachelor Industrial Design I gained a broad field of knowledge and experiences. I enjoy various projects and combining my knowledge and interests.
