I work at Mei because I have always loved various kind of projects that were done by Mei. Over the years I thought of Mei to be an inspiring environment to work in and therefore I wanted to become part of the team.
My favorite building is the Carbide and Carbon Building in Chicago. When I strolled along it in 2016; the building had gone into my head and never left. It is a dark green 153 meter high tower in the Downtown area made from tinted terracotta as main material, black granite in the base and the top is made of gold leaf. In The Netherlands my current favorite building is De Kroon from Rapp+Rapp in The Hague.
I am most proud of my family and their contuining support and love.
