My Name is Greet. I am born in the early eighties in Belgium. I got a Master in Product Development and took specialties in Usability Design and Web Development. Currently, I work as a Manager Experience Design in London. I prefer getting involved in the early stages of a project when often we don't know yet what it will become. Coming up with ideas, working these concepts out, and aligning the strategy with the experience are my favorite activities. I speak Dutch, English, basic French and a little bit of Portuguese. This portfolio website contains a selection of my work.
