I have over 15 years of experience in digital accessibility and inclusive design. Together with my team at the Accessibility.nl Foundation I provide strategic advice and accessibility services to organizations in the Netherlands and abroad, both in the private and public sector.
I performed various accessibility research projects commissioned by the Dutch Government, The Netherlands Institute for Human Rights and disability organizations that were discussed in Dutch parliament and covered in national press.
In the Accessibility Foundation I manage the audit, training and consultancy program in Accessibility.nl to embed accessibility strategically within organizations. Among those large companies and umbrella organizations in banking, insurance, online retail, public transport and government.
My other passion is photography. I am a freelance photographer specialized in portraits, concerts and events. In 2010 I published my first book Jazz Leeft with friend and fellow photographer Eric van Nieuwland. My work is published as artwork for music, pr and in newspapers and magazines. I work on a regular basis for national newspaper Nederlands Dagblad and jazzmagazine jazzenzo.nl.
Since 2010 I run a small videobusiness together with my collegue Eric van Nieuwland through our company Dironec Media.
