Creator & people person
I love to create things and help them grow. Interaction with (all sorts of) people gives me energy and feeds my curiosity greatly.
My passion is the future and how we can make it as great as possible. Many societal challenges lie ahead. I spend a great deal of time studying what's to come and how we can benefit from it.
On that note, I recommend you to read "Utopia for realists" by Rutger Bretman (who was only 27 when he published this amazing and now critically aclaimed book).
My life is full of curiosity and new roads. So far I have enjoyed a lot of luck and fun in life. It has made me grateful. And I try to be humble. Try! Life is a journey. And who you travel with is more important than the destination.
Motto: Walk the talk
My heritage - born and raised in the south of Denmark
I was born in Aabenraa and also lived a big part of my life in Tønder, a place where the land is as flat as a pancake. Both are cities in Southern Denmark, both cities had a great impact on me. I have always had my mind in the sky so it has been a privilege to be born in the most down to earth place you could ever find. Values like honesty, humility and equality are not taught, it is not nescesary, they are so rooted in the culture you can feel them.
I owe a lot to the wonderful people of this area. It is my sanctuary where I can always return to be reminded about who I am.
