About

I’m a writer, photographer and editor based in Copenhagen, Denmark. My greatest professional satisfaction is helping people to tell their story, and enabling organisations to reach their strategic goals through effective communication.

I have an academic background in philosophy and sociology, followed by vocational training in photography and journalism. It sounds a bit weird, but I feel it’s set me up to be a curious journalist and editor, with a capacity to understand and communicate difficult ideas.

In addition to working professionally as a photographer, journalist and editor, I’ve occupied roles as Head of Communications for both Mino Danmark and at Designhøjskolen Højer. In both cases, the roles include formulating and implementing external communications strategies as well as a little digital marketing.

I’m most proud of co-founding and running The Murmur newspaper for four years as editor-in-chief. It was a startup media with just two full time employees – I was responsible for all editorial content and production, while my partner managed advertising, distribution and marketing. My role was comprehensive. In addition to writing a large share of the 40-page monthly publication, I sourced and managed our team of freelance writers, and built relationships with a wide range of sources and press officers. When we closed the publication after 42 issues, I had built a network of over 100 contributing individuals.
