I studied at Design Academy Eindhoven in well-being, the department led by Ilse Crawford, where I graduated in 2014. After internships at Aldo Bakker and Scholten & Baijings I chose to combine graduation with work at Formafantasma. The studio back then was still located in an old school building in Eindhoven. Shortly after graduation I moved to London to work with Ilse and a year later I continued my work at Formafantasma, who in the meantime moved to Amsterdam. In 2017 I started teaching at Well-Being which now has transformed to what is called 'The Morning Studio' led by Thomas Lommée, founder of OpenStructures. Fast forward to 2021 we moved the studio to Milan and opened a second in Rotterdam that I now run. Besides activities in design I also love photography and do commissioned work since 2020.
