I'm a designer, writer, community organizer and amateur software developer.
I recently completed my bachelor studies at Design Academy Eindhoven with my thesis "How to Serve Your Trash to the Public Domain", which uses the act of "recycling" unwanted files by means of a peer-to-peer protocol to explore the extent of agency that an end-user can claim on the Internet.
I'm currently part of Hackers & Designers, an initiative that aims to bridge the gap between designing and programming through hands-on workshops, tool-building and long-term research trajectories.
I'm also part of the Queer Consituency, a collective body within the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven that openly explores the involvement of the local queer community's perspective in the museum's curatorial practices by organizing monthly Queer Book Clubs and Drag-ups within the institution's public spaces.
