Together we built a unique creative environment in the center of Amsterdam for hundreds of artists to find a place to meet and connect. The goal was to build a central residence for talented creatives, filled with ateliers, production studios, co-work spaces, and even rooms to stay in.

+ Provide affordable spaces for 500+ talented creatives.
+ Helped develop the neighborhood.
'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.
Over 1000 Surprises sent in total to families in need and lonely elderly.
GivingPlatform is currently only in operation around the holidays.
Founder / Designer
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.
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.
Enabling thousands of like-minded people to get quality educational tools for the benefit of mental health with psychedelic medicine.
After years of volunteering within the psychedelic research & mental health space, I worked together with harm-reduction experts, researchers, and artists.
Hundreds of people online gave their input for a truly co-created toolbox that gives homages to pioneering psychedelic medicine, helping thousands of people who struggle with treatment-resistant depression, clusterheadaches, or PTSD.
