I was born in 1974 and I believe I belong to one of the most lucky, unique generations ever lived: I am part of a demographic which grew up without Internet, slowly saw it appearing on computer screens, and gradually transitioned into a world where the net is now in our pockets, on our wrists, in our fridge and many more connected devices.
I started taking stuff apart when I was 6, and this desire to discover the inner workings of objects has guided me my whole life through hacking computers, engines, code and electronics.
Armed with this curiosity I became interested in many aspects of computing and technology, as well as many things technical.
I moved to Amsterdam in 2002 where I worked as a Creative Technologist for Wieden+Kenney until 2005.
I supervised, directed and/or developed projects for Nike, Nokia, GoreTEX, Heineken, Bottega Veneta, Mandarina Duck, Electronic Arts, MTV and many more.
I currently teach programming, electronics and other things to whoever wants to learn, often developing my own methods to explain really complicated things in a more tangible, down-to-earth fashion.
I do not try to teach things I don’t thoroughly understand, which often leads me to learn completely new subjects in order to be able to explain them to myself and others.
In my off-time, when I shower or do the dishes, I think about ways to improve things or invent new ones.
I began experimenting with mobile devices in 2001, and internet connected objects in 2007.
