About me

I love to travel and take photographs. I grew up on a steady diet of comic books and LEGO®. I’ve been playing basketball since I was little and still do to this day. I’ve had the privilege to work for National Park De Hoge Veluwe, Kwik-Fit and The Dutch Heart Foundation.

Prior to Mangrove, I worked as designer at VI Company, hAAi and 2D3D where I worked for clients such as The Dutch Government, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Aids Fund and ING.

Projects I’ve worked on at Mangrove have been awarded with Most Popular Website of the Year 2015 (Dutch Heart Foundation), a Bronze Lovie Award (Hoge Veluwe National Park) and have been nominated for the Dutch Interactive Award (Kwik-Fit).

I hacked this site together in Jekyll using Sublime Text 3. The type is set in Calluna and Calluna Sans, created by Jos Buivenga.

Thanks to Gideon Heilbron for his help with the front-end development of this site.
