I studied design in the Netherlands (BA at ArtEZ) and London (MA at Goldsmiths University). After working for several years as a furniture designer in Amsterdam I co-founded the young designers platform Tuttobene (2006) and was founder of the organisation Connecting the Dots (2010) for which I currently work. Connecting the Dots publishes and presents Dutch design and design-culture internationally during key design events and fairs. Connecting the Dots was present at the Milan Design Week, the London Design Festival, the Guangzhou Design Week, the Business of Design Week Hong Kong and the Dutch Design Week. My current occupations are organising trade shows, curating exhibitions, mediating debates and editing the magazine. Born and raised in Amsterdam, lived in London and Milan.
