My illness and I are celebrating our 10-year anniversary. During my 29th year of life there is a risk that I will go into a deep depression where I don't want to live anymore, despite loving life. By using the various artistic expressions and tools I have picked up during my 10 years outside of the branch I am exploring my illness and investigating the perfect way in which to be ill.

I am interested in merging theoretical knowledge with practical implementation and co-founded the organization Urbana Frirum. In our first project Caroli Park, a former church was temporarily turned into an indoor park. Like this, theory was turned into practice and practice informed our research. Now I am working on a new coaching/workshop concept that incorporates research drive and theory building into project management.
