Maurits Woudenberg is the founder of Locked.Amsterdam. Though a jazz musician by trade, he’s always had a passion for tinkering. As a child he built musical instruments and a functioning telephone to call his brother’s bedroom. When Maurits met René Nijman, they noticed they shared the same love for building stuff. Many strange creations followed, like a voice-controlled beer can launching trebuchet (no more getting off the couch when you want a cold beer). Later René involved Maurits in the process of building illusions for the Dutch TV show Mindf*ck.

Today, Maurits focuses his creative efforts on building the most advanced, challenging and fun escape rooms you’ve ever played.
