As a professional I like to connect and build bridges. After studying architecture I built op experience in design, strategy and sustainability, but always with a disciplinary focus and an international perspective.

I am passionate about architecture and the future of the city. Economic, ecologic and social values are central aspects of my work in the Netherlands and abroad. Since 2021 I am Strategic Advisor to Zaanstad Municipality on Urbanism and Space, and since 2014 Research Director at www.nextcity.nl.

To share my knowledge and help develop young talent I have taught at the Academy of Architecture Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam, UvA, TU Delft and other universities abroad. For BNA, Royal Institute of Dutch Architects I set up the international program and together with developer Synchroon the career accelerator www.nextstepprogram.nl
