‘Bringing together big ideas, creativity and the experience of teams is what really creates success.’
Where are you from?
What inspires you?
For me, inspiration comes from things that surround us every day. Things that already exist made by humans and nature, and the action of sharing it; stories about travels, dreams, love, experiences, etc. I frequent museums, exhibitions of all kinds of creative work, like photography, painting, illustration, fashion, editorial and interior design. I love listening to music, attend concerts and sharing that experience with friends.
The Lord of the Rings. The adventure, the epic tale of friendship, love and heroism makes me watch it again and again. After reading LOTR (trilogy) by JRR Tolkien I can only say Peter Jackson did an amazing job with the cinematography, custom design, makeup and visual effects.
Favourite album cover?
Affinity by Haken. The cover truely represents the concept of this album. The 80’s that came with the vision of the future and the simple but strong design. The progressive metal band broke with the paradigm of the predictable metal album cover image.
Favourite holiday destination?
New York City
What 6 people, living or dead, would you invite to a dinner party if you could?
Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Hedy Lamarr, John Lennon, Steve Jobs and Angela Merkel.
Coffee or Tea?
Skinny flat white, please! Not any coffee, Melbournian coffee.
What are you most passionate about outside work?
Metal music and almost all genre’s, like speed metal, power metal such as Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Helloween and Iced Earth, heavy metal such as Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Judas Priest and Led Zeppelin, progressive metal such as Opeth, Haken, Devin Townsend and Evergrey, death metal, trash metal and doom metal. I’m a metalhead 🤘
