As a designer my goal is to design better products. I believe that many of today's products can be designed in a way that they reduce or even eliminate inconveniences in the product's usage. Creating products that let people smile, is what I aim for.
As a conceptual designer, I am driven to find solutions for existing problems, as well as designing new products and experiences. Doing this, I always look for the right combination of styling, usabilty and producability.
Sofar I designed multiple products that differed from all other products in the same product category.
I am the proud owner of a 1969 Volkswagen Van, which helps on my search for adventure on my trips to France, Spain, Portugal and Denmark. I enjoy working on, and repairing it, but think it's best just to drive it around, finding a nice spot to mountainbike, surf or pick-nick.
