About I currently teach marketing & product development, user centred design and design ethics, at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science (HvA). Prior to this I was head of school for the Communications and Multimedia Design Bachelor course at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam.
Before moving into education I spent 15 years working firstly in supply chain and business planning and then in marketing. I was European marketing manager for Portable Audio products at Sony until 2000 and then worked on various marketing and marcoms projects as a freelancer.
I finished my masters dissertation on natural rights and intellectual property in December 2007. I am now working on a PhD proposal.
