I hold a Masters degree in Industrial Design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine arts, school of Design.

I find my inspiration in people, places and cultures around the world.
My main interest lies in solving a problem trough function, form and material, making a good sustainable design solution and polishing the idea to perfection fitting it in to a world of human beings.

I love learning new things and to know about the newest design solutions, techniques and materials.

I am a positive person with good people qualities, i work well independently and well in a group, i am a strong team player and through many years of playing rugby i have a good sense of team spirit and team play.

I finished my Bachelor and Masters in 5 years, after my bachelor i had a 4 month internship in TCL multimedia, China. The internship was part of the winners prize in the student design competition; turn on your creativity.
