Planning, controlling and managing projects from start to finish. Concept development and organisation of events, producer of exhibitions, AV and multimedia productions.

Like with many other Tinkers, creativity played a large role in my childhood. I loved drawing, claying and painting, and was encouraged by my mother, herself a painter and sculptor, who turns everything into a wonderful new creation. For the longest time I planned on doing a creative study programme, but in the end I opted for Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, followed by Culture, Organisation & Management at Amsterdam University. 


After completing my second Master’s thesis, I was all studied out, and ready to start working and learning about the real world. After several other jobs, I started with Tinker in 2003. Here I work on many different projects. In events organisation, in developing the ‘look and feel’, the setting and the final appearance, there are many ways to channel my creativity. I like to design rooms, to make them beautiful and accessible. The scope of our assignments has broadened, and I have gone on to producing exhibitions, AV and multimedia projects. I love the versatility of my job!
