Since October 2012 I have worked as a freelance journalist in Afghanistan following the lives of Afghan women and men. The life and murder of an Afghan female police officer, a friend, reinforced my conviction and belief in fighting for liberty and human rights.
I love working with people and my experience from
living and working in such diverse environments as Afghanistan, the US,
England, Austria, France has given me a strong understanding and appreciation
for working with people of different cultures and backgrounds.
In the 90’s I ran for a seat in the Danish Parliament
for the Conservative Party and in 1994, I was elected as the Alternate for the
Conservative Member of Parliament representing Falster. Since then, I have worked for
Citibank and The Danish-American Business Forum which I ran for 7 years. I have travelled extensively in Africa and the Middle
In May 2014, I was sent by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a short term OSCE Election Observer during the Ukrainian presidential election.
I enjoy public speaking and have spoken at the Atlantic Council, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, the Police Association, the Danish Defence and others.
