About Me

In short:

I was born in 1988 which makes me 23 years of age.
I grew up in a suburb near Copenhagen, began playing drums at the age of 9, but I’ve loved music for as long as I can remember.

Composing entered my life around the age of 15. Back then it was the Hiphop/rap genre that made my heart tick and therefore a group of friends and I joined forces and began making our fist album together as Penta.

I sold my first piece of music about a year later to an art gallery at the local community center.

Throughout high school I developed a deeper interest in music theory (along with participating in the high school musical – Little Shop of Horrors) and this made me consider the possibility of studying music theory at the University of Copenhagen.

Before I got in to college my fellow rappers and I managed to produce a CD. My interest in the hiphop world had disappeared though, and I was forced to find a new way of satisfying in my urge for music.
I discovered that the music I really loved making was mostly centered around emotions. Which led me to the epiphany that I had to venture deeper into the awesomeness of composing for film and TV.

For my 22’nd birthday I got my very first Berklee-course from my wife – Film Scoring 101 – from which I got hooked. An addiction that (along side smoking) has been impossible to quit. :)

I am enrolled in a masters certificate (orchestration for film and TV) which along with university of copenhagen and several other music projects fills up my symphonic everyday life.

After having completed Jingle writing here at Berklee I’ve been working to get into the business of commercial/ad-music. It seems that I have found my way in through a photographer who are trying to make a comeback into that business. in writing moment I am waiting for or first client to accept the product. Truly an exciting time.

I plan on moving to LA around october/november 2012 to get closer to the dream of scoring for the silver screen.
