PORTFOLIO

From 9-5, I work as a management consultant in IT innovation in the retail industry.

From 5-9, I work on the contradictory question how we might combine innovation with privacy.

MASTER THESIS: DESIGNING PRIVACY-FRIENDLY SMART PRODUCTS

 

I studied design at the TU Eindhoven with a specialisation in "smart products". In the year of Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal, I graduated on privacy. I took the standpoint that technology innovators should try to do their job without collecting so much personal data. Under the supervision of a mentor who controversially works for Google, I completed innovation projects in the retail, healthcare and smart-home industry. For example, this is a picture of my privacy-friendly shop compass: you can use it to find products in a store that you saw online on a webshop. And it does not collect any data:

 

 

 

 

I also lead a pro-bono organisation in mentorship.

50.000 Feet

 

50.000 Feet is a pro-bono mentorship organisation. We provide mentorship to young-adults for free. It all started when I asked the five students that I was mentoring, to become mentors themselves once they are ready. I said: "think of it as a mentorship-snowball-effect." Some of my students now have their own group of students, and the result is a small community of highly supportive and ambitious people.

During my study in design I have - very passionately - worked on a bunch of projects that are entirely irrelevant for what I am doing now, but which are still fun to show.
