Bio

With over 16 years of experience in film scoring I've had the pleasure of working with some of the best known professionals in the movie and TV industry such as Jan Troell (three time Oscar Nominee), Per Ã…hlin and companies like Nordisk Film, Nimbus Film, Social Club, Penn Film, Zentropa and many more.

I graduated from Berklee College of Music in '98 studying a dual major in Film Scoring and Classical Composition.

I've composed and produced music for three full feature movies and numerous documentaries. Scoring for commercials is also a side of my work that I enjoy very much and some of my clients have been Toyota, The Danish Lottery, Scan and Aladdin Chocolate.

The last six years I've had the time of my life writing children's music for the animated series "Laban the Little Ghost" and also "Little Anna and the Tall Uncle", 31 episodes in all, which have had great success both in theaters and TV all over Europe.

Specialties: Composing for anything from a Jazz Trio to a full Symphony Orchestra. My musical styles include Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Electronic and more.

I work well under pressure and I have the equipment and the knowledge to be able to produce great sounding music with the help of sample libraries and my computer to keep the cost down or score for and conduct big ensembles when the budget allows.
