headshot_editI am a Philosophy graduate and current MSc Publishing student who is, maybe somewhat controversially, mostly interested in digital publishing. I love print too, but it is the possibilities of digital technology that really fascinate me.

My interest in digital media was sparked back in the Netherlands, where I worked as an editorial assistant for SeniorWeb, an organisation which helps senior citizens to be part of the information society. As I expected, this course has increased my passion for all things digital even more. What I did not expect was for my interests to move increasingly towards production and design. There is little I enjoy more about this course than trying out new things in InDesign for our digital magazine Publishers Inc. In an ideal world, I would combine my love for digital and design by helping to create new digital products.

When I am not working on publishing projects, I try to explore as much as possible of Edinburgh and its surroundings when the weather allows, or practice the violin and watch documentaries when it doesn’t.
