Additional Info

Originally a professional musician, I fell in love with diving over 25 years ago – an experience that changed my life. I became a PADI Instructor in 1994 and a PADI Course Director in 1999. During that period I still played and taught music in the winter and managed a dive centre in Copenhagen in the summer. But it was time to make a career choice, and diving won when I was offered the editor chair of the Danish version of DYK – the Scandinavian Diving Magazine, a position I held for fifteen years. In 2011 I founded DIVE THE WORLD – The International Dive Magazine.
I started dabbling in DIR and technical diving in 2001, but for no particular reason, I did not complete my first GUE-course until 2007. Since then, I have not looked back and are now very proud to be part of the GUE instructor team.
