I’m a software engineer 👨💻, hobby farmer 🧑🌾 and entrepreneur 🚀.
I enjoy nature, building great user experiences and tractoring. My favorite part of the world is the forrest just outside my door near Aarhus, Denmark 🇩🇰 where I live with my wonderful family 👨👩👧👦.
I've always loved tinkering with software and electronics.
I started my career in tech by co-founding a series of startups:
While the success of the startups differ (UniHelper is still full steam ahead), they all contributed to who I am today and I've learned a ton about building products, teams and processes. I've also done some freelancing and I'm currently making use of all my skills as a Frontend Tech Lead at Paperpal.
I enjoy combining creativity and empathy to solve actual problems for real people, eg. by building excelent developer tooling, UX focused interfaces or facilitating communication between different stakeholders. Out of pure luck this was also what my IT Product Development degree prepared me for, as it taught me the full spectrum from Computer Science to UX to business.
I could write pages and pages about myself, but that would be useless. True value comes in interaction with other people, likeminded or not. So, who do you think that I am? What defines me, from your perspective?
Let’s do an exercise. On the paper below, write the first thing that comes to mind when you think of me. I’ve written a little something to get you started, just don’t get caried away with flattery. ❤️
As any succesful hiring manager will tell you, it's very important to put fixed, absolute ratings on your skills so everyone can see what you excel at. We all know that the best and most trustworthy person to assess your skillset is yourself.
