I am a designer and art director currently based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

I have worked in a wide range of studios including; Post Studio, New Graphic, Unthink and iZest.

This Must Be The Place

While in Post Studio, we were asked by Hens Teeth to envision our own perception of Paradise. Rather than paradise being a fixed location, we defined it as a state of mind with interchangeable perceptions.

What we perceive to be known as paradise, over a period of time, inevitably becomes our mundane reality once we obtain it. The contradictory nature of the idea of paradise can be seen when we visit tropical locations. These locations are enforced and sold with superficial layers to us as the ideal paradise, yet to the inhabitants, this is their reality.
