I am a passionate designer from Rotterdam 🇳🇱 and graduate of a Master’s degree in Graphic Branding and Identity at the London College of Communication. I have about five years experience in the fields of branding, typography, digital and editorial design and currently work at Ascend Studio in London.

Besides design I’m also a keen photographer fascinated by cities. There’s a few series up on my Photo page – with more to come soon.

I like to travel.
That’s me spotted in New York with a popsicle.
I’m usually behind the camera though.
