About me

I am a very outgoing and driven person and I love to explore new things. I have always been interested in creating cool and positive user experiences and have loved designing ("knutselen") ever since I was little kid. As an Interaction & User-Experience Designer I always keep the user's point-of-view in mind. I am interested in creating new and innovative interactive systems (both digital and physical) and discover how these interactions can shape people's behavior in real life in a positive way.

I participated in many extra-curricular projects and activities such as committees, a board year and a job as an editor for a news website. Through these experiences I gained strong communicative, team-work and organizational skills and learned to deal with stressful situations. It also inspired my passion for organizing events and writing.

A short history

BearingPoint Caribbean

In June 2019 I decided to go on an adventure and move to Curaçao. I am currently working here as a senior UX designer at BearingPoint Caribbean. As the only UX designer at BearingPoint Caribbean (and probably Curaçao) I am responsible for the user-friendliness of all of the tax administration and social security systems we create. This includes creating more awareness about UX and its positive impact on any online environment & client relationships.

CLEVER°FRANKE

From November 2017 – June 2019 I worked as a UX designer at CLEVER°FRANKE. In this role, I was responsible for translating the complex data and matter our clients bring to the table into user-friendly systems that help people better understand and interact with the data. This involved leading client workshops, performing data analysis, extensively researching user needs and designing innovative interaction systems to help them reach their goals.

Mirabeau

From January 2014 – November 2017 I worked as an interaction designer at Mirabeau. I worked with many different clients (Q-Park, Berendsen, NEDIS, SNS, PGGM, APG, ZoWonen and more) on a variety of projects. My responsibilities included researching and exploring user needs and experiences with digital environments, designing of user-friendly interaction styles and understandable content and evaluating the design’s understandability.

Human Technology Interaction

In 2013 I obtained my MSc degree in Human-Technology Interaction at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Through various courses in psychology, consumer behavior and attention & cognition I gained more in-depth skills in human behavior and (psychological) research. I also set up and conducted various scientific studies.

Industrial Design

In 2010 I got my BSc degree in Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology. During my studies I conducted many design and research projects, both individually and in teams. I learned a lot about the design process, such as idea generation, concepting, user-centered design, prototyping and programming, aesthetic representation of design and marketing. I became most interested in user-experience and interaction design and focused on this during my last year.
