I've spent my life learning the art of storytelling, understanding how it elicits emotional reactions from the viewer, and how to evoke thoughts and reflections in an audience through visuals. I have a passion for crafting unique worlds for each story, using colors, space, rhythm, and blocking to provoke my characters into making choices.

I create character- and story-driven films. I love exploring personalities and characters when they are challenged by life. What leads a person to a specific choice in a particular scenario? That's always what I ask myself when delving into a scene, a new project, or a new story.

 

I love commercials, as they push me to simplify and intensify my storytelling in order to convey complex stories within strict rules. It helps me grow as a storyteller.

 

I place great importance on having strong collaborations, as I'm aware that making films and commercials is a team sport. As a director, my job is to bring together the threads and ideas from a multitude of disciplines in front of the camera to achieve the best possible result. "You never know where a good idea will come from" is my mantra, perhaps why I have many partnerships and clients that go back over 10 years.

I am a graduate of the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, I'm based in Copenhagen, but I work worldwide. I have been mentored in commercials by Nicolai Fuglsig, with whom I have worked closely in LA for years on his commercials and on his feature film, 12 Strong. 

My work has been nominated for an EMMY and twice for a YDA at Cannes Lions, among others.
