USE.media is my interactive studio, from where I collaborate with other designers, artists and developers to create surprising, fluent, user friendly interfaces and experiences.
While studying Graphic Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy — in the early days of the www — I quickly grew a fascination for digital media, introducing endless possibilities of communicating with a user.
In those years I designed an adaptive browser concept, which won an international award and kickstarted my career as independent designer/developer.
While working with pioneering places like VPRO digitaal and Waag Society and getting a Master at Sandberg Instituut, I founded USE.media as a place to collaborate and discover.
The following years I was creating experimental websites, looking for the edge of technical possibilities, exploring interactive video projections and designing immersive touchscreen experiences. At the same time I worked with commercial clients to prototype new online ideas for them and create friendly user interfaces.
I’m involved in a couple of startups, like helping to shape a digital product as part of a team, or operate as an independent small studio to create webapps with help of talented professionals in my network if needed.
I live and work in Amsterdam, have a family with two young daughters, enjoy renovating and designing our historic house and keep at least one day in the workweek free to raise the girls.
