I am passionate about:
Development and exploration of ideas. Am easy to excite when people/ companies challenge known concepts. I am particularly interested in furniture, sailing, all things mechanical and love when technology benefits all (particularly the environment).
A little known fact about me is:
I launched my first vessel at the age of 7. A "construction-board-raft", sealed with nails and kept afloat with a plastic container. The raft turned submarine to much amusement of the "mom-crowd" - lesson learned; missed buoyancy in my research .

Testing an entrepreneurial idea
"Adventure on the go. I think adventures can be found in all shapes and forms."
I am from Denmark, have travelled more than 30 countries, lived in USA, Ireland and Thailand. I have found that humor and smiles is pretty much a world language, but sarcasm is a nordic thing.
I am currently in a furniture and development state of mind. I have a small "urban workshop" in an insulated 40" shipping container where I focus on testing ideas and concepts. It has over the last 6 months been my test facility for venting own ideas after many years of working on other peoples projects. I am however facing a reality - team work is better and more fun than solo work :-)
I once had an instructor who used the term "Feedforward" - he used it to keep team members from only providing feedback on what was missing on peoples ideas and from giving vague positive-ish comments. Instead he forced team members to build on the provided ideas and go with the flow by giving "feedforward".
