About me

Technology

Technology is my biggest passion. I enjoy discovering new technologies; especially looking for possibilities and ways they can help people.

Since I was 8 years old, I have had my own computer. Since then, I built my first website and have been exploring the possibilities of technology. I taught myself various programming languages to build my own programs and new experiences.

Business

Business is crucial in design. Without a good business model behind a product or service, it can never succeed.

To prevent this, I developed myself in this field. For example: I obtained a certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship and I worked at Uw Computerstudent to learn in-depth how to work with clients, develop strategies and how to deploy new products/services.

Empathy

I believe empathy is a core competency that can truly strengthen humanity. Empathy connect us and helps us cope with situations in life.

I strive to implement empathy in my daily life. I want my designs to empower empathy through technology; combining the best of both worlds: the deep sense of connection from empathy, and the high adaptability and availability of technology.

My skillset

Also take a look at my resume.

I am an all-round designer. I have experience in group work, as well as individual project. I am eager and self-guiding.

I am good at quickly evaluating ideas on feasibility and building prototypes- especially technical and functional (e.g. programming, electronics, etc.)

Furthermore, I can help with developing business strategies for new products and services, or improve earlier business models.
