I'm A Director
Despite the Scandinavian name, I am only 18% Danish. You know those guys who get accepted into the best film schools and just win one prize after the next? That is not me :-)
However my drive was always someone telling me "No." Nothing gives me more energy. And while I age like a good wine, I learned to turn that rebellious spirit into a genuine interest in people. They deserve to be listened to. And if we want to sell them something, they deserve to be touched in return...or at least entertained.
I learned the ropes of directing on film sets assisting my way up the food chain, meeting great mentors along the way. After I got some film schooling at the HFF Munich, I went to NYC where I assisted numerous fashion and beauty photographers and lived a poor mans sexy life. Back in Berlin, I founded my studio in Kreuzberg in 2009 and have been shooting TVCs and music videos ever since, as well as the odd album cover and portrait.
I taught Photography and Film for the Berlin School of Popular Arts and for Al Jazeera in Qatar when the world was a bit more peaceful.
Finally I like to add that I am experienced with shooting remotely from Berlin in China and that I already had Corona (kills your wine experience).
