I'm an architect by trade, and storyteller by heart. My interest is public space in all it's complexities, from design to planning, from co-creation to urban renewal. I have a passion for uncovering unique ways to use public space, and I enjoy creating new tools for better understanding of public space potentials. Currently I'm one of the director of ISOCARP (International Society of City and Regional Planners) and the creative director of Blok 74 planning communications, both in the Netherlands. My working fields are urban design, public participation and digital technology, as well as international knowledge exchange management.
