My name is Rick Schifferstein. My professional life started out as an academic career in the field of sensory perception, consumer research, and industrial design. However, at some point in 2008 I noticed that I started to lose my inspiration. I wanted to do less computer work, and have more direct and in-depth contact with the people surrounding me. I also wanted to make more use of my creativity and my interests in painting, dancing and singing. In Studio ZIN (founded in 2010), I combine my passion for creativity and innovation with my personal interest in people.

Here are some facts about my work history and the training I received in various areas:

  • Academic career at Wageningen University (1988-2000), TNO Food and Nutrition (1995-1996), and Delft University of Technology (2000-present)
  • Personal development through private sessions using bioenergetics, postural integration and creative therapy; coaching training (School voor Coaching); courses on bodily expression (5 rhythms); a 3-year personal development program (Itip); and a 1-year program using vocal expression (Marius Engelbrecht).
  • Various courses creative expression, including dancing (ballroom, latin, salsa), singing (classical, modern, musical), and abstract painting.
