On February 2015 I returned to the IDStudiolab as a teacher of practice after a 10 year official hiatus, though I never really left. In 1999 I was there as a fresh father and PhD student when the IDStudiolab was founded. I did my research on Designer Interaction with Informal Collections of Visual Material and received a Cum Laude PhD from a great committee in November 2005.
The years after this I ran my own design consultancy For Inspiration Only, while teaching at many different institutions. Starting in
Since I was selected as Most Inspiring Teacher of the DfI Master and nominated for Best Teacher of the TU Delft last year, I really wanted to come back to the faculty where I graduated from in 1995 and finished my PhD at in 2005.
I will be working 2,5 days here (tue, thu, fri) in education such as the Master Identity Days, Interactive Technology Design, Skills Academy for the different masters and in general the use of video in education.
In my spare time you can find me with my family on our farm in Sleeuwijk (near Gorinchem) and acting in plays. Also you can occasionally see and hear me on the apple-focused podcast One More Thing and maybe even see me on the NOS Journal talking about Twitter and other social-technological issues.
