In order to see the stuff I put on this page, you have to choose from the menu to the left and then use your browser’s scrollbar.

Please be aware that I only put up the stuff that I guess you will find fun to watch. This means that all the thousands of pages of text I have been laying out over the years are not here. Also; I have been uploading things very irregularly. Some years I haven’t even thought about this homepage. So please forgive me, if you’re looking for something specific and you can’t find it; probably I didn’t even put it up. So consider this a taste, if there is something that interests you and you don’t find it here – feel free to contact me (preferably via e-mail).

Please note that I put some links under ‘contact’.

Co-founder of ‘Legalizer ApS’, an agency supposed to create new ways of developing and implementing communication for primarily non-commercial businesses and organizations. We had skills regarding everything from printed matter to events, and worked for trade unions and NGOs. We even made a political campaign for the election in 2001. We also did a lot of regular graphic design work for clients like Post Danmark og Gyldendal. From 2003 I ran Legalizer on my own, with a few employees.
