Who I am.


I was born in August 1990 in the southern part of Denmark, Europe, which is also where, I've spent the most of my childhood and youth. I lived in the Northern Italy (Torino) with my family for two years when I was a boy. I have attended private school from 0th to 9th grade. I have always had a passion for music. Since the age of 12, I have played drums. I like being physically active. Since the age of 9, I have played football (soccer). Mother, father, two brothers, traveling, music, sports, stubbornness, loyalty, willingness, love. I'm still in the process of becoming a fully educated architect. But every day, I find myself learning and gaining valuable experience in the immense field of architecture.


In the summer of 2011, I got accepted into Aarhus School of Architecture.
I've always been fascinated about travelling and discovering new parts of our world.I guess, it all started when my family and I lived abroad in Italy for two years in the mid 90's. Since this, every year has offered a new travel and a new destination to explore.

My 5th semester (fall 2013) was spent on NJIT, USA.
This semester was full of great personal experiences as well as professional. 

7th semester (fall 2014) was spent in Shanghai doing an internship at SHL. Working in a professional practice challenges you and teaches you in all possible ways.

A semester (or more) abroad can only be recommended. It's a huge winning on all sides.


The creation and the process and work behind creativity and its outcome has always evoked my curiosity. Through various kinds of activities and social experiences i my youth, my awareness and sense of creativity and team work did only increase.

When hard work, a long process, and team work finally pays of with a satisfying outcome of what has been fought for, every drop of sweat becomes worth it all.
