I want to support governments to improve the effectiveness of their (digital) services. By translating knowledge from research to practical use. As a member of the Gebruiker Centraal (User First) community I took part in the creation of the website and the game Optimal Digital. Now we are creating a fast growing community of users and trainers around the game Optimal Digital. In this way knowledge and experience is transferred in a fast and practical way.
Passionate about all things digital with a keen interest in user-centred design. I am captivated by how digital has transformed the ability to translate a story into a usable experience. A new way of experiencing the world.
