I am an inquisitive and creative mind with a strong interest in the intersection between art, culture and technology. This resulted in following an MA in New Media and Digital Culture in which I wrote a thesis about "Post-Snowden Art". A self coined term that describes a new field of art in which artists are responding to the massive growth of surveillance in todays society.
In order to turn my theoretical knowledge into more practical skills, and to find out how tech can be used to make real impact, I started the Experience Design program at Hyper Island. Here I am trained on aspects such as design thinking, idea generation, rapid prototyping, human centered research and leadership.
As part of the program I am currently working as a strategy trainee at Havas Lemz. A creative agency that was founded on the core idea that brands shouldn't just tell nice stories, they should act and interact to prove their relevance and social value.
