About me

About me

About me

I have a M.Sc. in Digital Design and Communication from the IT University of Copenhagen where I specialised in interaction design. During the past 10 years I have lived, studied and worked in Oslo, Berlin, and Copenhagen. Currently, I call the latter home.


Throughout my career, I have worked on projects that involve developing and enhancing brand identities, designing intuitive interfaces, and creating cohesive design systems. I have also gained experience in digital design management and have collaborated with cross-functional teams to solve design challenges and meet user needs.


In my free time, I enjoy photography, spending time outdoors with my dog, and music. If you're in need of a unique perspective and a strong set of design skills, I'm your guy!
