About Me

What really drives me and fascinates me as a photographer are these questions that I always have in mind:“What are you thinking about? What motivates you? What makes you laugh, cry, smile, get emotional? What brings you joy? What keeps you going? What makes you live?”

Background

Achievements

I grew up in the countryside and have lived, studied and worked in England, Austria, the US, France, and Afghanistan. I have an MA from The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at The Johns Hopkins University.

I worked for Citibank and The Danish-American Business Forum – 7 years at each company and I am a board member of several Danish organizations.

I have been researching Islam, religious extremism and the conflict between Shia and Sunnier and the effects on society. Visited Imam schools in Morocco and Jordan.

In early 2017, I joined the two-year photography program at Key Point Photography Academy, which I completed at the end of November 2018.

In October 2012, I graduated from the Danish School of Media and Journalism and I have, since then, been working as a freelance journalist.

In 2012, I initiated and facilitated the idea behind the DR Horisont program on Danish National TV about an Afghan female police officer, Nigara, whom I met while working for the EU Police Mission in Afghanistan in 2009. 

In May 2014, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent me to the Ukrainian Presidential Election as a short term OSCE Election Observer and then to Georgia in October-November 2017 for local elections and most recently to Armenia in 2018.

In 2015, I finalized the TV documentary on the Danish Naval Special Warfare Group, together with STV A/S, a Danish production company. I initiated, facilitated and co-produced the documentary.

Adventure and Nature

Exhibition

I have traveled extensively in Africa and the Middle East and written articles in various Danish media. Whether I’m working in the US, Afghanistan, Europe or Jordan as a journalist, board member or photographer – Samsø is my home.

Nature, hunting, beach walks, the calmness in the woods, meeting with other cultures, experiences and people are my primary sources of inspiration for my work as a journalist and photographer.

2018: In September I had my first photo exhibition in Samsoe – “The Many Faces of the Samsoe Festival”.

2019: I exhibited my pictures taken in Tavan Bogd National Park in North Western Mongolia at the Art Fair Kunst for Alle exhibtion in October and again at Creative Mind Art and Design Exhibition in November.

2020: In January I was part of the group exhibition :
Tretten Fotografer, Tretten Fortællinger  exhibited by PixlArt which will be shown at PixlArts gallery later in the year. Due to the Corvid-19 we are awaiting a new date for the opening in Østervrå.

In October 2020 I participatde in the Art Fair Kunst for Allle.
