About me

I am a (digital) design graduate, currently studying economics with a prime focus on digital business concepts, at the Fontys Academy for Creative Industries.

I’ve studied design for over eight years (2007 - 2015), giving me a diverse background spread across many design and technology-related disciplines. After graduating as a digital media designer, I started studying economics (2015 - now), focused on digital business concepts, connecting business and design.

During and between studies I’ve worked with both internet and design agencies, an architectural firm, technology companies and a social design studio. I like to design, strategize and everything in between. The combination of both studies gives me the power to create and evaluate on both a design and business level.

On a personal level, I enjoy good food, hunting contemporary art, fitness and personal design projects.

Education

I started my learning journey in 2007 when I started at the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam VMBO. A four-year program to introduce and explore all creative fields such as press, audiovisual design, graphic design, stage engineering and digital/web design.


When I graduated I moved on to the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam MBO in 2011. A four year program where I studied Graphic Design for the first year and translated into Interactive Media Design for the next three years. During this study, I've completed two internships in one year. I graduated in 2015 as an Interactive Media Designer.


My current adventure is a four-year study (2015 - 2019) at the Fontys Academy for Creative Industries (ACI) in the city of Tilburg studying Commercial Economics with a prime focus on Digital Business Concepts (DBC). The objective of this study is to design, create and validate (mostly digital) business concepts.


The study focuses on a broad range of disciplines e.g. marketing, business economics, visual design, research, and concept creation. The disciplines are being applied to projects, where I work on cases for companies such as; employment agency Randstad, Tilburg University and creative agency TamTam (part of Dept Agency now). During this study, I hope to learn about leadership, economics, investments, concept design and business creation.
