I am an internationally recognised and prize winning documentary photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
My editorial and commercial work has been published in The Guardian, Unicef, Berlingske, BT, Politiken, Kristeligt Dagblad, DR, TV2, Magasinet 360, ELLE, Copenhagen Open, One Love Skate Mag, Pusher Skate Mag, Københavns Universitet, Lexington, Danish Union of Journalists, Carlsberg, Tech Festival, Northside Festival, Aarhus Festival Week, GAFFA among others.

Throughout the years I have had to pleasure of participating in a number of masterclasses and workshops, latest in 2017, where I was selected for LensCulture's “Northern Lights Masterclass” in Amsterdam.
Whilst completing my Bachelor in Photojournalism at Danish School of Media and Journalism, I spent a year and a half as an intern at one of Denmarks most influential papers, Berlingske Tidende. Here, I worked on daily assignments and longer reportages from the Queen of Denmarks birthday, the Danish astronaut Andreas Mogensen’s arrival back to Earth to the international refugee crisis, local skateboard competitions, NATO exercises in Poland and portraits of actors and celebreties, sports and much, much more.

I strive to provide unparalleled visual storytelling solutions and first-class communication strategies utilising both digital and analog tools. Apart from my profession as a visual storyteller, I work as a Visual Director for the nonpartisan think tank and NGO, SamfundsTanken. Furthermore I have self published the book Skandinaviske Sammentræf about unconventional ways of travelling. I have also been a coauthor for four books in the Startup Guide-series, for which I have also been a coordinator and photographer.
