With a background in Graphic Design (BA”16), Computer Science & Electrical Engineering (Summer intensive”17), Videogame Studies (Summer intensive”18), and recently completed two Master degrees simultaneously at Universities separated by an ocean; Film, Design & Politics (MA”19) and Cinema Studies (MA”20). Throughout my studies, I have developed a cross-disciplinary practice of visual storytelling through combining and connecting different fields of study, in which the Arts, Design, Film, Science, and Technology become intertwined with one another.

Along with my studies I have been supported, nominated, and rewarded with awards, such as the Young Master Award, Crow Foederer Talent Award, Lew & Edie Wasserman Scholarship, Roberts Clark Award, Mondrian Fund, and Stimulerings Fund. Several of my projects have been presented and screened globally during the Dutch Design Week, GLOW International Light Festival, Depot Basel, Sonic Acts, Pineapple Underground Film Festival Hong Kong, Imagine Science Film Festival, Goethe Science Film Festival Namibia and Brazil.

As for today, my main focus lies within the research and practice of future technologies, aeronautic cinematics, and the future of work @LABNEST – For the next generation of future entrepreneurs, kickstart your startup.
