If you're going to qoute someone, quote someone good.
The book ‘Whatever you think, think the opposite’, by Saatchi & Saatchi's former Creative Director Paul Arden, is filled from cover to cover with beliefs I share and have come to live by.

I like taking on each project, each challenge with the child-like belief that nothing I can cook up is so crazy that it's just inpossible for me to do it. Like having incredible superpowers! I like the crazy, but simple stuff. A BIG fan of the great ideas that make me laugh and can be explained to me in no more than 2 sentences or one simple drawing. Everything is advertising in my eyes, and so I still try to learn something every day, just by looking at life itself. And everything is creation, so the most simple day-to-day things can inspire me to no end.

After almost 10 years of working for both small and larger advertising agency's, I've pretty much been involved in every aspect of advertising and creation. All the way from advertising- and magazine lay-outs and colorcorrecting proofs at the presser, to developing corporate identities and full blown through the line campaigns. I've worked for clients such as T-Mobile, Schiphol Airport, Delta Lloyd, ABN Amro, Bols, Phlips, Nokia, Heineken and Columbia TriStar Pictures.
