After many years in senior positions in the design industry, today I use my experience and knowledge to help other companies through Creative Cultures Consulting. 

Business strategy is very much a creative work. With experience in business development, communication, international B2B and management work, my firm opinion is that sustainable, long-term development takes place with strong teams in a clearly defined context, where different competencies are linked together.

Curious about people and the world around me, and with visionary thoughts, I appreciate personal meetings, where competence, openness and unpretentiousness are put in the forefront. In addition to discussing design issues professionally, I like to chat about art, architecture and literature. I find as much power in deep forests as inspiration in the metropolitan jungle.

Ready for your next step? I am.
