Hi, I'm Alex

I'm a no-nonsense nonsense maker working at independent agency N=5 in Amsterdam. Senior by title, but junior by heart. Even after almost 15 years I still get waaaaay too excited when we come up with a good idea. I'll start jumping up and down my office chair, shouting out puns across the agency. And although I’m almost 40 and I have 3 kids (wait, what!?), I then stay up way too late making silly comps and texting those to my parents around midnight. Oh, and I won some awards. The end.
