Hi! I’m a freelance graphic designer and photographer based in Copenhagen. Educated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Design and Glasgow School of Art and with a background in photography from Fatamorgana – Danmarks fotografiske billedkunstskole.

Besides working as a designer I create stuff together with the art collective FUKK – Forenede Uafhængige Københavnske Kunstnere. www.fukk.dk

Don’t hesitate to get in contact I’m always interested in new collaborations and meeting people.
