Hi! Thanks for visiting my website!
To start, I want to explain who I am as a person, where I study and what my interests are. First, me as a person. If I describe myself in three words, I would say that I am enthusiastic, disciplined and social. Enthusiastic, because I love the things I do and when I love something, I want to show that. It doesn’t matter what kind of activity it is, if I do it, I’m enthusiastic about it. Disciplined, because I focus on what I am doing and I don’t like quitting. It doesn’t matter if it is about obtaining a skill, learning a theory or working out in the gym, I have the discipline to put time and effort in it. Social, because I love being amongst people and talking to them. From long philosophical discussions to chit-chat, I love everything about it. You can learn a lot from people. Also those you would least expect it from.
At the moment, I am in my final year of Design for Interaction, a master on Delft University of Technology. Here, the focus lies on conceptualizing products that are relevant for the user. This phase of designing contains several different aspects, ranging from research to translating data into design. What I like most, is the latter of the two. I want to be creative in exploring several possibilities to use opportunities to create products for a target group or lifestyle. My personal interest within this phase lies at various ways of rapid embodiment prototyping, combined with electronics (like Arduino). Next to product design, I also do graphic design. Here, I create logos, posters, banners and all other sorts of graphic design you can imagine, like this website.
Next to designing, I also have a love for music. One that is so big, that I DJ in my spare time. Further on this page, you can find where I DJ and what it sounds like.
The example above is a 3D printed candle holder. Also for sale on etsy.com.
This is a project I created with laser cutting, containing a pattern to bend wood.
This project consists of a laser cut embodiment, with an Arduino powered Led-ring and Led-light.
Isometric 3D illustration
I don't only make 2D illustrations, but also 3d, for several purposes. This is an example of such a project.
These are examples of marketing material, like Facebook banners, information flyers and posters, which I created.
I create logos for different purposes, examples above range from a cleaning business to a social learning group.

Also music-related, next to DJ'ing, I am co-owner of an event agency called Stoepkrijt. What started as a party in Club Stalker in Haarlem is now an organization that has hosted several events and even a stage at Project Veerplas Festival, a big festival in Haarlem, where Artists from all around the world played.
The parties that we host are concept-based, focusing on positive childhood memories and recreating activities from when we were kids, like twister, chalk, cotton candy, pop corn and even a ball pit.

Next to designing, I play music in various nightclubs. I mostly play in clubs around Amsterdam and Haarlem, like: Club Stalker, Patronaat, Chicago Social Club and Westergas Factory. I also played outside of the Netherlands, in the Opposite Club in Prague.
I have a profound love for vinyl and like to collect records from artist in a lot of genres. To come to rest, I dig for new records on the internet and in local stores.
My booking agency is owned by good friends and is called Je Suis Energy. They take care of the business side of playing music for me.
