About: I got into SUP in 2008. For me, SUP is not a simple pastime; it is my passion and way of life. 

I am not a professional sportsman. I have a regular job, a family life. I am a compassionate athlete eager to share my experience with others. I am the happiest when I am on the water spending time with family and friends.

I’m driven by my passion for SUP, and I like winning. All the titles I’ve won are of equal importance to me.I am inspired by my family and the people who share my interest, which, above all, include respecting the ocean for our future generations. It can be boiled down to a quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry: We do not inherit the earth from our parents; we borrow it from our children. 

Looking further ahead, some day I would like to be involved in bringing a major championship to our islands. 
I view Denmark as a new sports adventure that will give me the opportunity to share my passion with the Danes and the rest of the world. Above all, I’m looking forward to representing my country.
