Hi, I’m Willem :) I am an artist and founder of a startup called Daze.  My inspiration for Daze stems from a belief that everyone is creative and that practicing creativity helps us reflect, grow, and further self actualize. The more that we create, the more we are able to connect with the people around us and envision more idyllic versions of reality. At Daze we’re experimenting with new formats for communication that give people the space to play and connect more meaningfully with the people they care about.  I’m very grateful to have organically found the joy of creating, and I hope I can inspire that same love in others. Before Daze, I was a co-founder of Muze, a freeform messenger. I also occasionally angel invest + advise startups. If you have any ideas that you’re excited about and believe will make the world a better place, feel free to reach out, I’d love to help ✨

I’m grateful to have been chosen for Forbes 30 under 30 in 2022.
