I was born in Copenhagen. I spent my childhood pretending I was an architect and rating music videos and ads. I got upset and started throwing things at the police. I then got less upset and started studying media technology. I decided that I had to do something else. I chose to follow my passion for advertising, so I moved to the Netherlands. Now I am studying advertising at Willem de Kooning Academy. It makes me happy.
My creative partner for the last two years is Daan Coelman.
I grew up visiting mummies in museums, drawing two-dimensional floor plans and fantasizing about space travel. At the age of seven, I spent hours rating music videos and ads on MTV. Californication blew me away. As I got older, I started to question our society and throw things at the police. In time, I came to realize that the police had very little to do with politics.
I have always been fascinated by advertising and communication. So, at the age of 17, I applied to an ad school and was rightfully rejected. I ended up spending four years studying media technology. I learned about movie making, graphic design, problem-based learning, programming and project management. However, I missed the creative process, so after a failed programming exam, I left university with one exam left.
I spent a few years working at an airline and at a newspaper. I worked as much as possible so my girlfriend and I could travel as much possible. Together we launched a popular Instagram account based on our travels. But we both knew that we wanted more. We packed four suitcases, two backpacks, and got two one-way tickets to Amsterdam, a fee for overweight baggage and left Copenhagen.
Today I am studying advertising at Willem de Kooning Academy, where my creative partner is Daan Coelman. I live with my amazing girlfriend in Rotterdam.
I am still questioning society and I am passionate about advertising, art, cooking, philosophy, politics, photography, sleeping in tents and (space) travel.
