Throughout my teens into early adulthood I have been involved in many assorted creative projects. I’ve made illustrations for schools, art galleries and publications. I have also had my designs on clothing, posters, birthday cards and even the odd bathroom wall. In my late teens I was one of the editorial cartoonists for the local newspaper in BC, Canada.
In 92′ I studied Business Communications at Capilano College in North Vancouver BC, Canada, but dropped out after the second semester due to an obvious lack of interest in Economics, Business Management and Accounting! Although, one of the courses I was interested in was Video Production, and that I liked:)
I then took some time off school to re-think my career choices and took up full-time employment at The Cactus Club Cafe in Burnaby. First I was the fry guy, then the salad guy then eventually I became a shift leader and part of the franchise expansion team. After coming to the realisation that making food was still creative, and very social; I decided to take my skills abroad.
From 96′ – 97′ I travelled in Australia and New Zealand while working in the Hospitality Industry. I returned to Canada only to give all my earthly belongings to charity and continue backpacking across Canada and Europe. I ended the journey in Hampi, India. It was there I made the decision to reside in Denmark, where I had lived for a year before.
In 99′ I was recruited to a Danish project, contracted to open a nightclub/restaurant on West Broadway in Manhattan New York, USA. After the projects completion I had the opportunity to return to Canada to visit my parents. So I climbed aboard a Grey Hound Bus and crossed America, and up to Vancouver.
In 00′ I moved to London England to live with my girlfriend, (now wife) where I studied Web Design at Tech Connect College. In 01′ I started edibletv Productions and made my first short documentary film for World Voices student organisation. The 15 minute video took 6 months to make. During this time, my wife (who was studying Anthropology at Goldsmiths University) and I bore our first son and decided to move back to Denmark.
From 02′ I worked as a freelance web designer while studying Danish and learning digital video as a member of Group 101 Copenhagen. In 03′ I had once again had the opportunity to take my skills abroad when my wife was doing her dissertation field work in Tororo Uganda. I worked with The Mifumi Project and CBM International producing videos for TV and web.
After returning to Denmark in 04′ I began working freelance under the name Edibletv.com on Web Design and Video projects with companies including DR , Krak, Roskilde Festival and LynxMedia. I did this for four years until we bore our second son and decided to move to Northern Denmark in 08′.
Currently I am working full time as a lecturer whilst renovating an old house in northern Denmark.
