Joost Langeveld lives in Holland. Creativity has always been an important part of his life. Until he was about 14, Joost obsessed over Technic Legos, making remote cars, cockpit interiors, a joystick, and even a food mixer to make pancakes. By the time he was 16, he had switched his creative energies to computers and began programming simple computer games and vector-animations to impress his friends and family. Joost's career is still in the computer field, but since he turned 26, origami has become his favorite hobby. Joost is fascinated by both the technical and creative aspects. He has found that it is one thing to fold a model so it has four legs, a tail and a head--but quite another to make it look like a real animal. Joost is especially known for his amazing and realistic flowers and arrangements.
