Very experienced all round journalist with ten years experience - many of from Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) - equivalent to BBC in Denmark. Worked for DR's "Deadline" (similar to Newsnight) for four years and "Orientering" - similar to BBC Radio 4 - for five years. 

Tons of live experience - last big job was the terror attack in Denmark, 2015. I covered that for three days for Fox News, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, BBC World Service, RTE (Irish TV) and CBS Radio with more than 40 live appearances. 

Until may of 2014 I worked for almost two years as London Correspondent for Orientering and SBS Broadcasting. 

In the past five years I have done loads os radio and TV Reporting and Danish Media and also for BBC and RTE Platforms and Al Jazeera. 

I am currently working as managing editor of a documentary series for TV3 in Denmark.

I have covered Danish society from top to bottom. At the top of society I have reported from parliament and on the Danish royal family. Aside from covering politics and current affairs, I have focused a lot of my journalism has been about marginalized groups and subcultures. My source list and mobile phone contact list include parliamentarians, homeless people, criminal immigrants, Nazis and football hooligans.

Education
BA in Journalism at University of Southern Denmark, January 2006. The Danish journalism education is designed in a way that you’re a fully trained journalist when you get the BA degree. On top of being trained extensively in written journalism, radio and TV the journalism studies at University of Southern Denmark are very academic and focus on many subjects such as sociology, economy and political science.
