Skilled and experienced creative concepter, imagineer and director/ cultural producer, crafting concepts for companies, the tourist industry and for the cultural sector. My job is a carefully balanced mixture of marketing, creative techniques and experiential design. An experience is never "just" the creation of chance. It has modalities that can be adressed, created and enhanced. Through careful and well devised concepts, I design the required experiences.
