CO-owner and director at Octopuss (octopuss.tv)
I am a co-founder of Octopuss and an award-winning film director based in Copenhagen, working internationally. I make narratively driven commercials and fiction. My style is hyper-realistic and approaches both realism and formalism.
I have worked in film for over 20 years, and have previously owned Green Copenhagen for 8 years, as CEO.
My interest are in culture, politics, and society - with the focus on creating sustainable change.
