I could talk write your ears off here, but then again; there's really no need, is there? Take a look at my website and/or LinkedIn to see if I'm something worth looking into.

The short ones though; yes, I love design; yep, I'm (proven) keen on entrepreneurship; yup, I'm enthusiastic about (social) innovation; yeah, you could possibly maybe say I'm sort of mainly an interaction- and play designer; (Hell) yes, I'm up for a foreign adventure if you're startup/job offer is not exactly in Copenhagen.

Brain Game CPH
Game Master
2016 - Current
Brain Game CPH is host for a series of escape rooms in the heart of Copenhagen. As a game master, I have several responsibilities. First and foremost, my job is to facilitate and guide guests through the escape room experience. In this, I get a chance to apply my knowledge of play mechanics and customer experience while at the same time gaining further insights in how humans play and interact with space, objects and each other. Further, I get hands-on experience on how puzzles, pressure and affordances of physical surroundings affect interaction and behaviour. Secondly, the escape rooms needs constant evaluation with the aim of designing and facilitating playful and in general enjoyable experiences. Hence, I also assist with improvised maintenance as well as help with new ideas for concepts and game elements.
