Mattijs is a professional Communication Consultant and Graphic Designer, based in the Netherlands. He has a Masters Degree in Communications from Radboud University of Nijmegen and is a Bachelor in Digital Communications from the Unversity of Applied Sciences in Groningen.

He became interested in aging research when he first saw Aubrey de Grey give one of his trademark presentations. This triggered him to think beyond the current paradigm of aging as inevitable and made him into an anti-aging advocate. Mattijs is part of the social media team – where his focus is mainly on graphic design. Besides the fight against aging Mattijs enjoys spending time with family and friends, learning about history (mostly Roman and French history) and outdoor activities such as gardening and walking.
