.. a UX designer based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with experience in delivering end-to-end UX design for software products. I’m passionate about designing digital experiences that leave a positive impact on people, society and the environment.
My biggest passion with UX design is the modelling of data and turning these models into logic and attractive user interfaces. Interfaces that represent the user's mental model and are a delight to use.
In designing a software product, I start with conducting user interviews and collecting information about the product. With the information I gain, I create user stories, a user flow diagram and a conceptual model. Now that I have a model of all the information, I start turning this model into an actual design. I begin with drawing wireframes, convert these to high-fidelity designs and finish with an interactive design. The final result is a design that is both user-friendly and attractive.
For project Freshkit I designed the mobile and desktop website of the fictional meal kit delivery service FreshKit. The final design consists of two interactive mock-ups.
FreshKit's design process
As part of the project Simple Project, I designed a new project management tool for startups and medium-sized companies. The application uses the scrum method.
Simple Project's design process
Because I have been a developer (Java, PHP) and system administrator (Linux) in the past, and because I have been an IT teacher on a high school, my knowledge about IT is both broad and deep. During the design process I'm also capable of delivering UML artefacts.

Besides UX design, my second great passion is open source software. Started in 2001, I have been using open source software exclusively for two decades now. This because I care about my digital rights and those of others. Because of this passion, I prefer to use only open source UX software during the design process (but I'm pretty flexible in a working situation).
More designs can be found in my portfolio.
