Interim Creative Director
Working with the best creative people is a blast - especially when you get the chance to stay long enough to go deep into all aspects of bringing a great campaign to life. I loved helping Tribal DDB with their digital accounts; at These Days I was responsible for Microsoft; at Ogilvy & Mather Amsterdam I took on their Philips Global LED lighting account; and Cheil asked me to help them on the rollout of the Samsung S7 campaign.

Relevant activities
-  Founding partner and board member for the last six years at The Freeforce.
-  Jury member for several years at ADCN (Art Directors Club Netherlands) and Spin Awards (the leading Dutch digital awards).

I have had the pleasure of working together with Taco several times. He knows to roll out a great idea in digital, like Microsoft FrameRate Fest, and he is also very good at putting together a team with the right people for the job. Taco is great company - and a warm-hearted person too!
