Urban planners and spatial designers sometimes view the world differently to traffic specialists. My own strength is that I can connect up those two worlds and look for integrated solutions that help to develop attractive and sustainable cities. For me, the path that you take is at least as important as the vision that you want to achieve. 

I studied planning at the University of Amsterdam. I’ve been working as a traffic and spatial planning advisor in Amsterdam since 1 November 2009. My interests and knowledge focus primarily on strategic policy development at the interface between spatial development and infrastructure development on an urban/regional scale. That includes structure strategies, integrated area development, location policy, node development, network visions, public transport studies, and sustainable mobility.
