I’m a UX researcher, service designer, and recently also a content designer with a passion for human behavior. I study (social) psychology and the behavioral sciences for fun and generally marvel at the human mind. I can think of few things as fascinating as observing a phenomenon out in the world and then reading a scholarly paper on it.
My curiosity towards the human mind extends beyond my profession. That why I also share stories from my personal life—the sorrows, the joys, and especially the confusion. Stories about living as a human being in this crazy world.
As Glennon Doyle states in Untamed, "Shamelessness is my spiritual practice." Or perhaps it's vulnerability.
