About

I started the Bakken & Bæck Amsterdam office in 2015, and my role has shifted over the seven years I've been here. I've contributed to projects in varying capacities, but product design remains my primary craft. My approach to managing teams is people-first; I enjoy keeping up with who I work with, finding out what drives them at work and which challenges they face and, ultimately, setting them up for success in whichever way I can.

As a Partner at BB, I work closely together with our Design Leads in helping them create the best place for their teams to work, together bridging the gaps between our different design disciplines and elevating the work we do at the forefront of the web.
