Curriculum Vitae

I have been working in CGI and visualeffects all of my adult life.
Since 1996 I have been teaching it more or less full time.

At some point Id like to get back to fulltime production, and Im willing to immigrate for the right job.

In my spare time, I like to play golf, handball and computergames. And I like to enjoy a pint of preferably english ale with my friends.



1987 I founded a company with a friend of mine, this is where I did most of my productions.

1990 I did my service in the 'Danish Civil Protection' firefighting unit.

Today several years later, the department has more than 30 fulltime employees and more than 300 students.
I also took part in describing the 3d/cgi/animation content for two new educations in Denmark.

It has been a truly great experience to be part of building something like this from the ground up. The next step is the creation a dedicated CGI/Visualeffects department, with a little luck it will be on track in end of 2000 or early 2001.

Since 1996 I have been using most of my time teaching, and the focus of the company was moving away from production, so as of January 1st 2000, my friend took over the company entirely. And I founded my own freelance buisness.

Apart from teaching and organizing anything related to CGI and visualeffect at the college, I have also been administering our now IRIX network, until it was phased out.

I did the visual effects for the 1998/1999 #1 danish award winning short movie 'Iltmangel' directed by Christian Fonnesbech

I did a lot of the CGI for a live dance/cgi projection performance called

White on White that was part of 'Dansedage' in Aarhus in 1999.

And in relation to the same project ( Digital Theatre - an experimentarium), I also taught and acted as a consultant for some of the people doing cgi for the performances.

Since 1999 I have been doing the Maya (and Shake until the Apple incident) support for the Scandinavian reseller Kinovox, currently I handle calls from Denmark and Norway, and I also do on-site training etc.

In 2004 I took a 6 month sabattical and worked for at Ghost in Copenhagen. There I worked as TD on a wide variety of tasks, ranging from texturing, and rigging to programming and dynamics simulations.

Also in 2004 and 2005 I was part of a project at LEGO redoing their pipeline for building instructions, and digital/virtual models. This included writing hundres of scripts totalling several thousand lines of code.
Today I teach both at the 'Centre of Visual Communication', and at 'MMD bachelor of multimedia.'

            I 2005 I worked on the awardwinning short animated movie "The Earth is Calling"  (a co-production of the Animation Workshop and HappyFlyfish)                                            

In the last few years I have been teaching regularely at both the MultimediaSciences education at University of Southern Denmark and The AnimationWorkshop in Viborg.

 -Apart from this I have had several freelance jobs in both teaching and production.(see my reference list)

Well... Id love to work on a large project like a film or a game.
Apart from that, a place like Rhythm & Hues, a place with a great atmosphere and highly talented people, is what Im looking for.
