After some roaming around in interior design and working independently as an antiques restorer for ten years, I joined DST five years ago. It began with the construction of two pavilions at the Floriade exhibition in Venlo, where I put all aspects of my profession into practice. This would soon be followed by other small and large projects. From teaching packages for generating power in an edition of 100 copies, to transforming a council church into a Van Gogh experience. You name it, I make it.
It is always exciting to see what designers come up with, and to have it ready in time. And having some money left in the kitty as well (I cannot help but being an entrepreneur).
