PASSION & PERSEVERANCE, WITH A CURIOUS ATTITUDE
Back in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), I combined my study in Industrial Design with competitive swimming. Having the right mindset (top sports mentality), helped me grow as a designer as well: I want to move forward, am ambitious, focused and mentally resilient – and that’s just the start. A fascination for the Scandinavian design culture brought me to Malmö, where I recently graduated as MSc. in Interaction Design. Next, I would love to work in a place that shares my passion for meaningful design and innovation.
Maybe that’s you!

LOCATION BASED STORYTELLING GAME IN THE CITY OF MALMÖ
In the Collaborative Media course, we set out to create a critically engaging, collaborative and intermedial production inspired upon Malmö’s ‘City Fables’. The result is a location-based storytelling game played in the streets of Malmö. We developed an original storyline based on the Amaltheadådet, in-game characters, 16-bit music, animations, micro-games, a hi-fi wireframe and GPS-enabled demo.

NEXT GENERATION THERAPY AID FOR STROKE REHABILITATION
For my bachelor thesis, I developed a training aid for stroke patients that makes important rehabilitation exercises more fun and rewarding. The prototype, where specific movements of the wrist and lower arm are required to advance in a memory skill game, was developed and tested with the input of physiotherapists and patients.

WEARABLE PROPRIOCEPTION FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Proprioception is the sensorial processes involved in the consciousness of the spatial location of an individual, posture and movement. A proprioceptive deficit and postural instability are essential problems faced by patients of Parkinson’s Disease. For my master thesis, I have developed a wearable system to support patients in their everyday life with vibro-tactile feedback on their posture and stability, increasing self-confidence and quality of life.

I admire his inner strength and his ability to bounce back from setbacks. Dennis' Ability To Learn From Failures, Thrive On Critique, Take Stock Of The Situation And Move On, Is Quite Unique – And Perhaps Something That He Has Acquired Through His Sports Career.

He’s very much able to comment on his own performance and knows how to convert points of attention to new and challenging goals. Also within the group Dennis knows how to motivate teammates and challenges them to set goals, push boundaries and work hard.
