Profile Pic_edited.jpg

I'm a director, writer and artist by day, and a nature-lover, amateur Thai boxer and couch-potato the rest of the time. I've lived in several countries and welcome the opportunity for living somewhere new. I've worked on all manners of projects and besides directing and writing I have a wide experience in storyboarding, concept creation and character design.

I have a Bachelor in Character Animation from the The Animation Workshop in Viborg, and have attended various courses in animationfilm, among others Animation Sans Frontières and the Scriptwriting and Concept Development Course at La Poudrière in France. I also teach at The Animation Workshop now and then.
