Info/Contact

I am a human based in Denmark and work within various visual fields. My latest involvement was as Technical Director on the animated VR experience and short film Nothing Happens. I am curious about interactive media and directed the mobile game Lost Tracks in 2015.

I have worked as a freelance animator for several companies and been teaching at The Animation Workshop, where I also graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Character Animation. Occasionally I do photography and teaching myself programming on the side.
