An entire page about me. Sweet.
I’m a UI / UX Designer based in the beautiful beach city Scheveningen, The Netherlands.
I help people, brands and businesses create and elevate their visual identity to the next level.

During design projects, I have a mindset that helps me gain the most out of my qualities; Design Thinking.
Design Thinking is a problem-solving attitude that utilises both halves of the brain.
On the right half, I have the creative part which generates ideas, insights and thinks iteratively.
On the left half, my background in mathematics and physics during my Astronomy study has helped me create an analytical,
Dissecting problems into multiple parts and solving these independently to get to the
conclusion makes projects tangible and assists in prioritising what needs to be done what doesn’t.
