I'm a data scientist based in Amsterdam, currently working at Spotify.

I work on projects aimed at enhancing the productivity and experience of developers, using research and data analysis to inform our platform strategies.

When I'm not working, I enjoy pursuing personal side projects, playing tennis, and taking photos.

Please get in touch!

I love helping others, and if you have a project or career question that I might be able to assist with, feel free to reach out to me. Whether you're interested in collaborating on one of my open ideas or need feedback on something you're making, I'm always happy to chat. Don't hesitate to drop me an email or connect with me on Twitter.

    I keep hearing from people that they find it difficult to keep track of what needs to be done. Every one of us has a list of different things to remember, work on, and accomplish. This list includes not only the very well-defined tasks that we call work, but also any Slack messages and emails that we have to reply to, documents that we have to read and review, and vacation time that we need to submit.

    While Google Docs is a great tool for collaboration, it's not without its flaws. I use it every day to communicate with different groups of people, but it definitely lacks critical features that could significantly enhance my productivity.
