Strategic Designer / Design Researcher
I am a designer that tries to combine ideas for innovative products or services with a rational business strategy. I do that with a healthy focus on sustainability and always involving the user in all steps of the design process.
My education is in Industrial Design, I have a Master´s degree in Strategic Product Design from the Delft University of Technology. I have also studied art history in Perugia and design Milan.
Previously I have been part of the Volkswagen Service Innovation Team in Wolfsburg, the start-up ShareSquare in Delft and Bax & Willems Consulting Venturing in Barcelona. Now I am working on a project in both Vietnam and The Netherlands on promoting sustainable consumption among Vietnamese consumers through co-creation.
