I am a senior forecaster and consultant for The Footwearists and I teach classes in concept development. I am especially known for my ability to approach any subject from unexpected angles, offering insights and solutions that might not occur to others.


I have a diverse background with thorough experience in journalism, infographic design and industrial design. I combine these disciplines for various segments within the footwear and leather business, including customers from the automitive industry, since cars are one of my other passions besides sneakers.


I also have my own consulting and design company and I am a lecturer in design research at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
