I’m an (industrial) designer, design researcher, blues dancer and writer who is interested in philosophy, art, and technology on a social level. I love to explore in nature, to do creative activities, and to connect with people through movement, creative expression and improvisation.
I’m an educated designer and researcher specialized in human-technology relations, both from a design and philosophy of technology perspective. I like to explore questions about the role of technology in our current and future society and how philosophy can inform designers in their process. My qualities as a designer are in the area of design research, design methodology, social design, human-centred design, embodied design, scenario based design and ethical&philosophical perspectives on design. Basically a human perspective on technology and how you can approach these questions using design.
In addition, I am an active blues dancer. You can find me on the blues dance floor both in the Netherlands and abroad. In 2013, I co-founded the Bluesdancing Enschede community and have been teaching and organizing the weekly classes there for over five years.
