I was born in 68.
Educated as building Architect from the Royal Danish Academi of fine arts Copenhagen and Constructing Architect from BTH, where I later became principal.
I am now retired due to a discus prolaps in my neck, and a bad operation... wich is ofcourse not wonderful, but has given me more time to take up the wood (life is what we make it).
Now retired due to health, and this have, due to periods of strong pain some big limitations (and natural daily pauses).
And a big child...
I love to use my hands, and to see what they can do!
I draw, paint, photographs, and have a soft spot for tools (too soft).
I have a wonderful workshop now, a studio, workshop, man cave, breathing space or whatever to call it, and it brings me plenty of life.
