"Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains."

Can I help you with something?

My love for researching and analyzing user behavior can be directly traced back to my academic background in Social Sciences and Humanities. Understanding the implications of my design decisions and assuring that every aesthetic choice makes functional sense in the greater story of the final product, fills me with a great feeling of satisfaction.

My expertise lies in habit formation, education and knowledge acquisition. Through my work experience as a learning experience designer, I'm used to working remotely and in international, multilingual environments. It also taught me how to structure and conceptualize educational materials and online courses with a holistic, human-centered approach and nowadays, I enjoy teaching and mentoring budding UX designers.

I’ve studied and worked in 5 different countries, traveled in many more, and speak 6 different languages (German, English, Dutch, French, Portuguese and Spanish). I wouldn’t be the UX designer that I am today without the intercultural sensibilities I’ve picked up throughout my many travels. Or without coffee, for that matter.

Let's work together!

I’m always on the hunt for new projects to unleash my research and design skills upon, so… if you have a problem to spare, please send it to me.

Thanks for your message! I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
