Introduction

With a background as a digital designer and more than 15 years of programming experience I have helped companies launch digital products in wide range of categories. From WordPress sites to highly specialized websites, web- and mobile apps built from the ground up.

My skills are focused around front-end development and JavaScript, but I work fluently with everything from UX and digital design to back-end and mobile development.

The last 3 projects

A personal note

Originally from the west-coast of Denmark but living in Copenhagen since 2001. I have been using the computer as a creativ outlet since the Commadore 64 and still consider myself to be most of all a digital media craftsman.

I enjoy running, sailing, concerts and festivals.. and the occational IPA in my favorite Nørrebro bars.
