Creating products that work perfectly, have an optimal user experience, and are visually stunning: that's what I love doing. Both in my job and in my free time I like to combine my beta skills with my eye for visual design.

Having both 'hard skills' and 'soft skills' allows me to translate (technical) challenges into solutions, to identify and address the client's needs, communicate clearly, and work in groups as well as independently in problem solving and implementation processes.
