BIO

I am a self-starting and forward-pushing Creative Director, Art Director, and designer with 10 years of experience in advertising, editorial and visual communication.
I keep seeking knowledge where I can find it and see most situations as a learning opportunity for me to keep growing in my field.
My favorite projects are the ones where I get to go wild and put my fingerprint on it from A to Z (Å).
I love concepting projects but might love the actual making-part part of it even more. 
I strive to lead my teams with a good mix of trust and responsibility as well as keeping them challenge so that they will have the opportunity to grow.
I have had the pleasure of working with clients such as Apple, Beats 1, Google, IBM, American Express and Nike just to mention some.

I am a proud member of the Awwwards-jury for the fourth year in a row and a member of Art Directors Club.
