Before I was born my family immigrated from Denmark to Washington DC because my father was accepted to university to study Immunology. Half way through his studies I was born. Having grown up in two cultures has always helped me understand different viewpoints when meeting new people. When I was 7 my father first introduced me to photography during our family move to Switzerland with a stop in New York City to see the museums and sites. On the first day, my father and I went to a camera shop and bought a Kodak 110 camera kit. A few days later, when I saw my photos printed - I was hooked!
I graduated from San Francisco Art Institute with a degree in Photography and was hired for my first assisting job in September 1999. From that moment on I haven’t looked back! The move to Europe impacted how I see and interact with the world around me. I have traveled extensively to Europe, the Far East, South America as well as to Australia and New Zealand. Photography is an amazing cross-culture bridge. It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak the same language, photography connects the innocent curiosity we all have about someone or something new.
