Founder Born05 & Creative director
Together with Sjors van Hoof (creative director) and Rogier IJzermans (general Manager) I start interactive & creative company Born05: a innovative business with emphasis on online customer loyalty products.
As creative director I was involved with every part of the process of building new unique online solutions: research, concept & strategy, art direction. And also the different aspects of the production process. I can proudly say that two art directors, under my supervision, were rewarded with several important awards like a FWA Awards

Parttime webdesign & concept at VBAT
Led by Marnix Tellings (creative director of Lost Boys) I design different websites including de site of VBAT, one of the biggest design agencies in The Netherlands, and the Flash construction of Atos Origin during the Olympic Games.

My ambition to give online meaning to big brands starts here. During my internship I develop the qualities needed to be an interactive designer. As a result of that I help VBAT win two piches: BNR Nieuwsradio and Het Financieel Dagblad.
