Though the homepage of this site says that I’m a designer in Amsterdam, I’m not Dutch, but grew up in rural Austria. It was only a few coincidences later, by way of Victoria and Vienna, that I ended up in the city where ice skating is an important mode of transportation. I was lucky enough to get hired by the charming people of Bolden, after I had convinced them I’d be sort of both, designer and developer. Which is actually what I like to do: Working at the intersection of design and technology.

Doesn’t matter if it’s a Sketch file or a React component, OCD’ing over reusability and consistency in either of them makes me equally happy.

Send me an email or DM me on Twitter if you want to know more about me or discuss work opportunities.

Nitty gritty about this site

This website is all static HTML files generated by GatsbyJS, which is amazing and I absolutely love using it! It’s generously hosted on Netlify’s servers. The source code is in a public repository over at GitHub in case you’re curious. The typeface used is IBM Plex by Bold Monday, a Dutch foundry. And I love Holland 🌷🧀 Yasss!

Thanks for sticking around and reading all this! Here, watch a hairless cat scratch its head on a guys’ beard.
