I am a designer & engineer currently based in the Hague, the Netherlands, specialising in XR technology & interactive [3D] world building.

 

My primary interest resides in constructing worlds and environments - in whichever way, be it writing, game design, 3D rendering, art installations or in performances. I have a soft spot for solving puzzles, which is why I often work with [visual] programming based software. What fuels me most is expanding my knowledge, which is why my skillset is always growing into different directions. Some may call that generalism, but it can also be viewed as a branching form of specialism.

 

 

A common question from those who hear the brand name: "why Studio Vodka?" I can give you a boring answer, or I can tell you a great story. You may guess which one I chose to give.

 

Berlin, 2017, midday. A man joins me on a park bench. A little too close, if you'd ask me... He turns his head, staring into my face at thumb length's distance. His eyes light blue, as if bleached by the sun. In the blink of an eye, the man whips out a bottle. "Vodka? 'T has glitter" His voice rather raspy. I look at his clothes. He's an old punk, weathered, but alive. The Vodka bottle indeed seems to contain glitter. "Sure, why not." I replied. I take a swig from the bottle, the liquid clawing at my throat. Ugh. I should start a company.
