I’m an (industrial) designer, design & market 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 and improvisation.
I’m educated as a designer and researcher specialized in human-technology relations, both from a design, philosophy of technology, and human insights perspective. Through exploring questions about the role of our material environments in our current and future lives, I enjoy discovering people’s daily life stories in order to connect the dots and use the bigger picture for driving change. My qualities as a designer and insights & innovation researcher are in the area of design research, market research, social & human-centered conceptual design, co-design, and philosophical perspectives in 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.
