Hi, my name is Niels Straatsma. I am a musician, tattoo collector and creative writer for brands and agencies. Right now I'm a Digital Creative Director at TBWA\X Amsterdam. Before that, I have worked at Hustle R/GA Los Angeles and DentsuAchtung! Amsterdam. I have created campaigns, branded content, product innovations, services and digital experiences.
I like to disrupt brands and businesses. Not just because it's cool, but to make people care.
Feel free to reach out for a chat. Or find me on Instagram for pictures of the great outdoors, strange people and cool cars.
