Danish architect, born 1979 in Skagen, Denmark - living in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Since my graduation in winter 2007 I have 3 years of working experience from the competition department of RIBA award winning 3XN Architects. 5 months construction design proposal  for SLETH Architects on the Copenhagen city expansion project 'Nordhavnen'. 3 months full time teaching at the Aarhus School of Architecture. Currently working for COBE Architects - an internationally operating architecture firm specializing in building and planning design, awarded the Golden Lion at the 10th Venice Biennale.

My field of work ranges between building scale and masterplanning scale, designing projects from their initial design phase on to design development - this meaning start-up phase with processing of information, conceptual design phase, final drawings, visualization and presentation, schematic design and and design development.

My approach is visually oriented - ‘you must show in order to tell’ - in order to visually discuss and refine the programmatic, spatial and ephemeral qualities that lies in the various concepts at hand.

I work in the programs:  Rhino 3d - Vray for Rhino - Autocad - Adobe CS package
