After studying in political science, I started as a Mapmaker (Kaartenmaker) at De Argumentenfabriek. In the five years that followed I’ve contributed to hundreds of maps. The complex questions I encountered while making those maps have been proven to be very valuable for enhancing my own thinking skills. Since 2015 I’ve switched to De Denkacademie ( The Thinking Academy), where I teach others the skills I’ve developed as a Mapmaker. Thinking can always be improved, and good tools are indispensable.
