Love gadgets, new products, and anything that can fly.
Grew up in Herning, Denmark. It is the center of the mainland, Jutland.
Growing up I always built LEGO robots.
Participated six times in First LEGO League and two times in World Robot Olympiad.
As well as building stuff I quite early grew an interest for software and design.
I spent many hours learning Cinema 4D, Blender, Photoshop, After Effects, and similar graphics programs.
In 7th grade, I taught myself HTML and CSS following that.
I believed that was all I needed to know about coding.
Later in 2007 when I attended high school, one of my friends introduced me to PHP and MySQL.
This blew my mind, and I went completely nuts with this stuff in all my spare time.
This was at the same time we competed in the World Robot Olympiad.
We used LEGO Mindstorms for that and changed the firmware to be Java based.
This gave much more freedom to do some cool things, and I learned (some) Java along the way.
Fast forward to 2011. I founded my first company, Digivi.
I got my first paying customer, who wanted a website.
I coded my own CMS (WTF, could have Google WordPress) for the client and helped him set it up.
After a year of fooling around with no business knowledge at all, I figured I needed to grow a network and learn some business procedure.
I began studying Business Development Engineering, the summer of 2012.
Quite quickly I met two cool dudes, Anders and Mikkel.
Already after one term together we decided to found a company together called Artboost.
This was the start of a crazy adventure.
During our time in Artboost, we coded an online marketplace from the ground up.
We learned a ton about E-commerce and how to leverage user generated content to grow faster.
In 2015, we joined the accelerator, Thinkubator in Copenhagen.
We got a wake-up call and push in the right direction for the company.
Some months after the accelerator I went to Silicon Valley for the first time to learn the ways of the pro.
Fall 2015, I stopped working in Artboost.
I wanted to try something new, and get back to the core, TECH.
Since 2015, I have been struggling to find my path.
It is hard to pinpoint a single route since; I have so many interests.
I have had time to think, experiment and learn a lot of new things.
Every day I have been consuming relevant articles about Growth, Marketing, SEO, Social Media, Marketing Automation.
February 2017, I got my degree in Business Development Engineering.
I also got a side gig as a wind tunnel instructor. I am really happy about this since it gives my time to think and get away from the screen and hustling.
I am also opening up to a new concept.
It is live QA growth hacking.
A speaking concept where the whole session is about the questions, and live demonstration of how startups challenges can be solved.
I am good at freestyling with code and tools.
Interesting in body flying, collaborating, or discussing the newest gadget?
