I was born in Denmark in nineteen eighty-seven, and at some point in two thousand and nine, I discovered two life changing things; graphic design and advertising.

From two thousand and ten to two thousand and thirteen I was studying my Bachelor degree in visual communication and found out just how little I knew about visual communication. I heard about the rules and then I learned them.

In two thousand and fourteen, I started working at an advertising agency. I worked and I learned. Rinse and repeat.

From July two thousand and sixteen I will be studying my Master degree in Creative Advertising.
