Co-Founder Plan 14
Creative Residence SUP
2015 - 2020

 I co-founded a local incubator for creative professionals in Amsterdam. By working closely with our municipality we built a unique creative environment where dozens of artists lived and worked.

 

We built ateliers, workspaces, photography rooms, and A/V production studios. 

This situation enabled hundreds of unique creative projects to establish and flourish in the center of Amsterdam. 

The initiative has housed over 400 artists in residence.

Child Receiving Gift

Founding Director
'Giving Platform' Non-Profit
2017 - 2021

I believe in the power of giving. 

In my spare time I built and managed GivingPlatform, an online platform that enabled over 2000 poverty-stricken people to be surprised by strangers. The project was successfully crowdfunded and featured on multiple Dutch national radio stations.

I built a digital platform where a user could surprise 'strangers' with highly personalized gifts. I automized the entire logistical process was automated.

Surprises sent

Families with children in need: 1900+

Elderly in need: 600+

GivingPlatform is currently only in operation around the holidays.

iPhone app
Founder / Designer
Vida (iOS)
2011-2014

I designed the productivity app Vida in 2013 from a-z. The app had a unique approach to goal setting and to-do lists. 

Vida was a completely unique ‘gamified’ productivity app. Users earned points and leveled up while working on their personal development. The app provided a clear overview of a person's life and achievements.

Downloads: 32k

Review score: 4.7/5

What touched me the most was the people sending me e-mails about how much it improved their lives.

I decided to sell the app to another company after it had reached thousands of active users.
