About / Bio
As an interior designer I started giving trendlectures on colour and design at the annual Sanoma VT Wonen & Designfair in Amsterdam about 7 years ago. There I found my true passion. Searching for and talking about trends. I wanted to professionalize my skills and that is why I went to trendacademy Rozenbrood. There I learned to improve my skills and take it wider than design only. Doing research, clustering and visualising the upcomming stories in my head and sharing them with an audiance or company that wants to change and think or work differently. Starting with a trendbook or -lecture as a tool. Various possibilities, always full of ambition, passion and with an open mind. Nowadays I like to work for companies as a trendconsultant. I show them the trends of the world and help them to translate them to their company, customers and products. Bringing the trends together with the company philosophy.
