I am a journalist and of curious nature writing and reporting all aspects of life – in South America. I work as a traditional journalist both in written media but also with radio and television. I frequently appear on the public service stations in Denmark such as Danmarks Radio, Radio 24syv and rarer on DR2 and TV2 television.
I have my own book- projects, which all deal with aspects of the South American reality either for local or my own life down here.
I am an all-round journalist with extensive knowledge of Latin American relations in general in politics, economy, culture and sports and have also finished a master’s in economics recently at the University of Buenos Aires.
