I love designing digital products and services which are both pleasurable and easy to use. The people who will eventually use these services are my main inspiration, the greatest challenge is to understand their needs in order to be able to offer the best solution. As a designer I like to learn new things every day by reading books and blogs, but I also love sharing knowledge during sessions, workshops and on an irregular basis I give guest-lectures on brainstorming and prototyping at the Hanze University Groningen (University of Applied Sciences).
Besides work, I love spending lots of time with my girlfriend and three kids. Also, I very much enjoy watching basketball, listening to basketball podcasts and staying up-to-date about basketball trades and statistics.
