Hi,

I'm Jurriaan Gossink,
Jr. Creative at MediaMonks.

About me

A bit of your typical atypical nerd? Introvert by nature, but I turn into a giggly kid when I have a VR headset on. Some history to this giggly kid: Born in the Netherlands (Son & Breugel - Brabant yet not a carnival fan), moved to Caen (France) when I was 6 - which is pronounced like Cannes but sadly it's the wrong one - then moved back to the Netherlands at age 12. Did the mandatory school thing & side hustled as a forklift driver at a massive cookie factory, which was as epic as it sounds (Willy Wonka but cookies minus the great colours & small people).

Started studying graphic design and *BAM*, learned that code wasn't all that scary there. This sparked my love for pretty much everything digital & tech hardware. But, I wasn't satisfied yet and wanted to dive deeper into the crazy world of creativity & concepting. So I studied advertising at the WdKA.
Present day: Part of the brand spanking new Extended Realities team which is incredibly exciting. Hope on bridging the gap a bit in what is possible and the creative for both AR and VR.

Lot's of blabla,have the important stuff here:

Education

Willem de Kooning
Bachelor in Arts & Advertising.
Cibap

Learning on my own is important to me, with coding and 3D development usually being overshadowed by the learnings needed for the projects I'm working on.
