Always driven to

go the extra mile or two.

I'm Marisa van Velzen, freelance product owner/project manager/technical consultant from Almere, Netherlands. Here's a bit more about my background.

Driven by a life-long passion for creation, improvement and excellence

I truly believe in the joy that comes from user and customer experiences that just flow, that bring no friction. I think the world is a better place when we make an effort to make things easier to use, especially the annoying and mundane things, and it makes me smile when companies get it right.

I’ve worked as a developer for a long time, but I was always a designer and a problem-solver at heart, always caring more about how things would help users (and look good too!). I’ve served in a number of roles around analysis, creation and management/communication.

Put me any place, and I’ll start finding problems and then solutions. I live and breathe continuous improvement, I love small and big changes.

Maybe it’s good to note, as this site is only in English – I’m actually Dutch. I’ve worked in Dutch and international environments.
