I am a passionate spatial storyteller.
Specialized in all kinds of creative thinking and doing. Especially in the areas of exhibitions, events and experience staging. Resulting in smashing designs for immersive environments.


As a teacher, coach and mentor, I am open to any dialogue.
Listen, empathize and focus. Reflection on the essentials, tracking down the story behind it to make the impossible possible. I know how to motivate teams as well as my peers and am a strong team player.
