“I enjoy figuring out how to make things beautiful.”

 

I gained my Bachelor in Photography, Design & Multimedia at the Art Academy St. Joost. After that I worked as a VJ for a while, and traveled for bit. After this short career path my heart fell in love with visual design, and creating visual identities for people as a freelancer.

I balance my flexible job with working for professionals, multinationals and personal creative work, like photography, awareness campaigns and digital artwork, which led to an opportunity to give a TEDx talk. I believe in a life where work and play are intertwined. Meditation, self-exploration and creating a more conscious world are very important to me, they are the driving force behind my creative work. This allowed me to work on cool projects, from emerging brands to self-created projects. 

My creative approach—no matter the medium—is to create visuals that move us beyond thinking and create an emotional connection. I love to solve design challenges and translate information to visuals that fits my clients vision.

On this site, you will find a selection of commercial and personal projects.
