About

23 year old Industrial Design graduate from the TU Delft. Graduated in 2017. Completed multiple and extensive courses on SolidWorks and used it as a design tool throughout my studies. After graduation I started working in the guitar industry. Had 6 months of work experience at Crimson Guitars where I started creating 2D sketches and 3D models of guitars and parts.

In 2018 I started working at Aristides Instruments in the Netherlands as their main CAD/ CAM designer, and I'm currently employed here. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience in guitar-related CAD projects both through my work at Aristides and personal projects. I have made several 3D guitar designs and parts , as well as 2D sketches, toolpaths and technical drawings.

While I have special expertise in CAD projects related to guitar building, I'm able to take a wide variety of jobs related to products design, 3D printing, sketching, vectorizing and rendering.
