about me

about me

My name is Daan and I’m a 22 year old designer from the Netherlands. I recently graduated from the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, and hold a BSc. degree in industrial design.

At age 9 I wanted to make a videogame, so I started looking into programming and graphics; two skills I would end up teaching myself the years after, and have slowly made me into the code-loving interaction designer I am today.

I love working with people from different disciplines to craft (digital) interactions between humans and technology.

Besides this I love cooking, baking and creating modular synthesizers. I am easily interested by anything tech.
