Corporate photography 2.0

Published on January 17th, 2011


You know how it looks. Corporate photography. You see it in company brochures. On company websites. Usually real employees exposed in very unnatural situations. Carefully instructed by the photographer. Always very aware of the camera and the flashing studio strobes. Always smiling like lunatics – although never enough to cover up for their anxiety about the whole situation. Read more.



Undisturbed writing

Published on December 18th, 2010


Writing is the process of putting your thoughts onto paper. I do this all the time. I write notes. Articles. Thoughts. Ideas. E-mails. I need to share some thoughts on the subject of writing, my writing tools and how they influence the process.

No room for a notebook in the new IC4 trains

I’m a big fan of public transportation, especially trains. Thus, the implementation of the new IC4 trains in Denmark is of special interest to me. I live right next to the train service centre in Århus, so for the past four years I’ve seen the new trains parked literally next to my house. The new.. trains are gorgeous from the outside. Long and elegant with pointed noses, these trains signal speed and efficiency. Today I had my first ride with one of them. Read more.

Cooking osso buco - three hours of deliciousnes

All those years, I figured I knew what I wanted to do with my life.  I would tell myself I would save the world. Or I would become an entrepreneur. A writer. A teacher. A photographer. But no. After spending this entire weekend in the kitchen; baking, cooking and eating; I need to adjust my original plan.

My students presenting an idea for a new website

Something I love: Teaching

Published on February 23rd, 2009



This week, I will be teaching a class in web development at a school in Randers. It is an international group of Hospitality and Tourism Management students. Many of them aim for a job in the tourism industry. Of course they do not need to be overly skilled web-developers. Nonetheless, it can be helpful, to learn some basic skills related to working with websites; both technically and conceptually. And that is where I come in.

Yet, I never dared to actually go the distance. However, back in 2006, I realized the value of an accountant.   Read more.

This grumpy man would probably not apply for a job as my assistant

I have decided to hire a part-time assistant to help me run my projects. I have no idea whether it will help me or whether it will just be more work. Since, I figured, even the best assistant will still need to learn something about my projects.

Embarrasing ly enough, I actually slightly misunderstood the definition of “social entrepreneurship”, but I guess it wasn’t too much of a problem, since my aim was to inspire people in general and to think about entrepreneurship in a different way. Key to my speech: Redefining and perpetuating what I do.
