I am an Amsterdam-based UX designer with over 5 years industry experience. 
At the moment I am working at PVH Europe, where I have the pleasure of working with known fashion brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, IZOD, and Nike.
My work experience ranges from e-commerce websites to data-driven platforms, in-store touchscreen experiences and various iOS applications. Besides user research and prototype validation, my everyday work includes designing for both web and mobile, while also being responsible for creating and maintaining a coherent design system.
