I like to consider myself as a teacher passionate about interior design and how design can transcend and yet integrate the pragmatic and philosophical. I am a teacher of ideas: ideas about interior design and how these are explored, challenged and translated into research, spatial solutions and the interior designers‘ and users‘ experiences.
