STIJN

I believe that what you want to ignite in others first has to burn inside yourself. Curious in life and work, I’m a creative, a thinker, a maker who likes to conceive ideas with impact; concepts with the potential to effect positive change, creating experiences that ignite. 

The goal I had with The Maker Sessions was to create an inspiring platform with a passionate group of makers and their accessible sessions. Aiming to refuel the imagination, spark new interests, and cut through the digital clutter of modern day living with enjoyable Maker Sessions. 

 

The Makers you will find on this platform are a selection of people I got to know in the past 17 years. Some of them I booked for teambuilding projects, some for brand activations, with others I been co-working on special projects like content creation and some I got to know in other occasions.  

 

These are the Makers who inspired me in taking me along their story. Talented and passionate Makers where I saw the same flame burning in igniting the fire in others. What we have in common? We just all like to make, create, share and like to awaken creativity in others.  

I get energy from seeing my passions spark something in others, especially when taking groups off the beaten track and into the wild. Aiming to rediscover what ignites a persons inner fire. Creating an atmosphere to reconnect, acquire new skills, and find the physical and mental space to share, embrace and explore unique team experiences. Experiences with a combination of storytelling concepts, group training, outdoor clinics and a variety of Maker Sessions. 

As a former pro skier (Staatlich Geprüfter Ski Instructor), I feel at home out in nature, and in my spare time you will find me outdoors with family and friends, chopping wood, painting, making art out of trash, or carving spoons and coffee cups out of fresh wood. Yes, I like coffee a lot, I even have an outdoor inspired coffee cup brand called "The Muoto Muki Project", and I like to brew it in the open air, over an open fire. For me it is the drink, and ritual, that fuels my best ideas.

My profile picture above is made by my friend Albert Rösch on a late night summer hike in Edsåsdalen close to the summit of Rennfjället, Åre area. With a found reindeer antler on my back I'm enjoying the stunning sunset, a moment I will never forget!
