About

 

I am a professional Kierkegeek. Since 2001 I have been full-time-exploring the authorship of Søren Kierkegaard: How it might be applied to actual everyday living and how best to share his paradoxical ideas with others in a way so they stay alive. So far I have been experimenting with active, participatory events, with musical and theatrical forms and with video-essays. Academically I have been employed as an “artistic guest-professor” at Aarhus University and as a som “research-fellow” at the The Hong Kierkegaard Library, St. Olaf College, USA. I do inspirational talks and I am a regular guest-teacher on Copenhagen Business School and on a psychotherapist-education. Originally I was trained as an actor at the London Academy of music and Dramatic Art and I have studied psychology and medicin at Aarhus University.
