Background

Summary

Sinds 1994 enthousiast in het inzetten van digitale media bij het bieden van toegevoegde waarde voor de eindgebruiker. Door het ontwikkelen van strategieën en concepten voor online dienstverlening.

Sinds 2001 werkzaam bij Info.nl, full-service internet agency gespecialiseerd in het bedenken, bouwen en beheren van effectieve online dienstverlening met virtuele warmte. Voor klanten als SNS Bank, ASN Bank, ING, Volkskrant, Robeco, Vestia, Kluwer, T-Mobile, Routenet, Van Lanschot Bankiers, Delta Lloyd en De Telefoongids BV.

Bij Info.nl ben ik als strategy director adviseur van key clients, en vanuit het MT verantwoordelijk voor de inhoudelijke ontwikkeling en kwaliteit van Info.nl.

Mijn passie ligt in het creëren van echte toegevoegde waarde met online media door het inzetten van interactiviteit en de kracht van de sociale media. Het ontdekken van de lange termijn ontwikkelingen en die vertalen naar concepten voor nu.

Presentaties gaf ik op Reboot, Mobile Monday Amsterdam, Eday, EuroIA, Marketing Pioneers, The Next Web, The Web And Beyond, Club of Amsterdam.

Projects

Behavior Design Amsterdam(Link)

In 2013 we started organizing a quarterly meetup about Behavior Design. In these sessions we invite a range of different speakers from designers, technologists, scientists and entrepreneurs to share their lessons and ideas about behavior design.

With the rise of mobile, wearable and social technology we are better than every capable of analyzing behavior and steering it with design. In these meetups we talk about the impact of Behavior Design and how you can use it for your company or product.

It's an informal setup where you get to meet the top of the design community, and have a nice conversation and drink.

We've had speakers from TU Delft, Hogeschool Utrecht, Science Rockstars, Sense OS, IKEA, UvA, Daimler and more.
