I freelance, primarily in East Africa and Denmark - and with a focus on media, civil society, politics and culture. This means I frequently switch between, or combine, being a coordinator, trainer, journalist, photographer etc.
The most relevant part of my professional background dates back to 2000 where I moved to Serbia to establish a campaign aiming at ‘breaking down mutual stereotypes between Serbs and Danes’. The Balkans kick-started my engagement in activism, civil society and communication and took me along and across the Ugandan border to Sudan to work with civic education of Sudanese refugees; to Tanzania where I have worked with communication and civil society, and back to Denmark working with communication and capacity building of civil society in development. In 2011 I started freelancing.
I am driven by working with people who get up early, go to bed late, and who are open for experimenting. Wide horizons, the sound of a new city, and meeting people. Off work you may find me taking photos on a busy street corner in Africa, teaching someone to blog, updating myself on Icelandic literature, composing the right soundtrack for a long-distance drive, sorting out African politicians' styles on Twitter, looking for roof top graffiti in Copenhagen, turning a new African fabric into an outstanding design, or spending time with my family in northern Iceland.
