As creative, you’re responsible for what’s happening in the world around you. I’m an Art Director who loves technology and believes that creative ideas, that are built on strong insights, can truly touch people and even motivate and inspire them to take action. That is why I love the creative industry and I’m eager to surround myself with passionate people to discover how much impact creativity can actually have.

In 2015 I went to School of Visual Arts in New York for an advanced five months advertising program. A great and valuable experience! This year I graduated from Willem de Kooning Academy as an advertiser specialized in branding. Project ‘YU’ is my graduation project. Check ‘YU’ if you did not already!

Please do not hesitate to contact me. A nice cup of coffee or a skype chat could be the start of something great!
