Interactive media are my home from home. As a six-year old, my family's Atari and later our Mac quickly drew my fascination. Their visual language intrigued me to no end, and soon enough I wanted to create my own interactive experiences. I began writing quizzes in BASIC on the Atari, and built interactive slideshows in HyperCard on the Mac. Ever since, visual language is my first language, and programming is my second.
The power of programming initially drove me to take up Computer Sciences at the College of Amsterdam. Disillusioned by the lack of creative outlet in this course, I quit after a year and signed up for Digital Media Design at the Utrecht School of Arts. There, I graduated Master of Arts on the subject of design strategies for user generated content platforms.
Today, I work as a freelancer in the merging fields of tech and design. The last few years I've been specialising in apps, platforms, APIs, responsive design and lean startup.
