He started directing in 2002 gaining a silver and audience award in the Nike Young Directors competition. Since then he’s been named in the top 10 young directors lists of almost every industry publication as well as being recognised as one of Scandinavia’s top directing talent with awards at the Epica, Clio, Cannes Lions and Eurobest among others. He’s currently in development of his debut feature, supernatural thriller “The Hidden”, slated for production in 2017.
