I'm a creative entrepreneur.

In 2014, I co-founded Sherlocked, an adventure design studio on a mission to make the world more magical and exciting. We created some of the world's most acclaimed and highly rated live games, among them the nr. 1 in Amsterdam.

Before that, I developed the Uncover MacBook, quite possibly the most insane way of personalising a computer.

From Uncover, also came a store, called Uncover Lab, the world's first tattoo shop for objects, which doesn't just re-brand MacBooks, but pretty much everything, on the spot. It's now based inside The Maker Store, in which I'm a partner since 2017.

I'm also proud to be involved with the development of MovieLearning, an online learning platform, centered around watching enriching scenes from movies :)

One of the projects that did not become the success I had hoped for was Replay My Day, a cinematic diary app for iPhone. Maybe some day I'll revisit that idea, but for now I'm very happy and lucky to be working on the above adventures.

Someties I give talks about entrepreneurship, using the Double Healix model, which is based on Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey and Manfred van Doorn's vision for an integral, cinematic look at leadership and life.

I have a deep love for the city of Amsterdam, and keep a map of my favourite coffee places here.
