Hi, I’m Tess, a creative do-it-all currently working and living in Antwerp, Belgium. I create intuitive voice and chatbots that put a smile on the user’s face.

I’ve always feel driven to make the most out of life. After graduating university, I had my own creative studio for a couple of years. Then I moved to Berlin to work as a Social Media Manager at one of the fastest growing agencies in Europe. A lot of people would consider that a pretty cool life. But deep down, I felt empty.

I was successful, but not significant. After a while, I started noticing how Monday to Friday would blend together. How I was dreading my next client meeting. I ignored my inner voice for months, until I suffered a bad burnout.

After the worst part was over, I decided to go traveling for a couple of months to clear my head. On that trip, I asked myself the big questions: what do I find important? Who do I want to serve? What do I want to be remembered for?

Once I got back home, I decided to start my own business (this one!) and focus on making people’s lives better by creating inclusive, intuitive AI experiences. You know, bring a bit of joy to our daily digital lives.
