I’m a 24 year old Dutch expatriate living in San Francisco.
I love making and enjoying well-designed things. I strive to make technology better and easier to use through visual & user interface design. I also have a lot of fun on the side with hiking, traveling, concerts and music festivals, photography, video games and making actual physical stuff.
I have previously led design teams and processes, designed products and user interfaces and consulted for companies you’ve heard of:
… but also plenty of fantastic small independent software developers.
Apart from doing design and creative direction on a freelance basis, I’ve also spoken at conferences, given workshops and consulted for teams and companies in the last few years. I also run a website where you can learn icon and interface design.
I currently work at a San Francsico based startup called doubleTwist, where I’m the Chief Creative Officer, doing my best to create the new best way to enjoy music, podcasts and other media on a daily basis with one of the best teams on the planet.
As I mentioned, I’m a huge lover of music and music festivals. I don’t play any musical instruments myself but I try to get out and enjoy the fantastic product of other people’s creativity to the fullest extent. I love independent video game and movie makers, too.
I express opinions and make bad jokes on Twitter, write a bit on App.net, share my listening habits on Last.fm, play games almost exclusively on Steam and PlayStation Network, and sometimes show a scrap of something I am working on on dribbble.
I don’t have a LinkedIn profile. I think it’s a terrible website and it should cease to exist as a standard.
I somehow tricked the crazy beautiful and sharp Bre de With into marrying me. She’s kickass. Some great photography on this blog is her handiwork.
If you have questions or would like to make any kind of inquiry, send me an email by addressing it to ‘s’ at dewith.com. Easy.
