I was born on the 9th of May 1961 at Østerbro in Copenhagen. I was welcomed by my parents from Jylland (Jutland) and my two older brothers.
We moved shortly after to Store Magleby, near Dragør, Amager.
When I was 4 years old, the family moved to Fyn (Funen), just outside Marslev, a small railway junction, where we lived for 5 years.
Then we moved to Rynkeby (the village famous for its apple juice and jam). Here my parents built a small nursery with greenhouses.
In 1983 I went on my first major trip, which was a half year to the United States and Canada. Together with two friends we drove 40,000 kilometers at the North American continent.
At the age of 25, I moved to Trige, a small town just north of Aarhus, where I still live.
I began to be involved in the disability movement, through Dansk Handicap Forbund DHF (The Danish Association for Disabled) and especially in Muskelsvindfonden (the Danish Muscular Dystrophy Association). I did, among other things, street theater, courses and began to give speeches.
I am in front of the great Mao Zedong statue at Fudan University.
In 1988 I began to study Chinese language and culture at Aarhus University. This brought me to Shanghai a few years later, where I studied one year at Fudan University. I also had many opportunities to travel around in the huge country.
I continued the studies in Denmark for 2-3 more years, but never completed my degree.
I became more active in Muskelsvindfonden where I for many years was a member of the supervisory board and the executive committee. And was also vice-chairman for a short period.
I have over the years held numerous speeches around the country and sometimes in other countries. The topics have also been diverse. I can mention a few, such as 'to live a life of quality ', 'Chinese cuisine ', ‘daily life with helpers’, ‘voluntary work in an organization', and various travel slide shows.
I have in recent years worked with theater. Recent performance has been a solo performance ‘Svinemusklen' (The swine Muscle), a provocative drama about disability, normality, acceptance and respect.
Today I live alone in an apartment with a small garden. Enjoy life and love to see and sense what is happening in my neighborhood. Perhaps that is why I love to travel.
I love food (also to make it), wine, beer and single malt whisky (Laphroaig, Caol ila, Lagavulin and Oban are among the favorites).
