I am very curious, and I always like to ask questions. I love to experiment and think in playful ways. I am convinced that more knowledge – of the world around us, and of each other – helps us to make life more fun.
After finishing my BA in Communication Management, I was interested in finding out more about the origins of science. It was then that I found out about the fairly unfamous yet superb MA Science and Technology Studies at the University of Amsterdam, which I completed in 2006.
I spent ten years working as a program developer at NEMO, the biggest Science Museum of the Netherlands, organizing exhibitions, workshops and various scientific demonstrations. During those ten years, I spent three months at the San Francisco Exploratorium in 2015, as a tinkerer in residence.
I still have not been able to decide my favorite ice cream flavor, but stroopwafel has very good odds. If you can guess my favorite color, you win a cup of coffee!
