Do you like living in Copenhagen? If so, why?
Copenhagen is my happy place for real. Im so happy to have grown up in a city with the values and mood like Copenhagen. Everyone is so laid back and for the most time happy. Summertime is definitely much better than wintertime because of Copenhagen being a really outdoor city.
How do you balance being a painter, photographer, videographer, graphic designer and model?
I'm really really a unstructured person so I do literally everything at the same time! No balance haha. But I guess it comes in periods where I'm like I really want to this and this so I focus 100% on this, but then the next day i build a whole project inside my head and I jump to the next thing... it's annoying but I'm getting better at it.
Which creative field is your favourite?
I think photography. Nothing beats the feeling of capturing a unique moment that have a personal affection for u. I love doing videos as well because of the beauty of combining visuals with sound. I guess I like it all my paintings is probably the most personal thing I do though.
When did you discover your spiritual side?
I've always been a very curious person but I think my spiritual side started showing up when I met a guy who made me think deeper about living life and being happy. I was a very unconscious person at the time and I was looking for answers and he literally put the words I needed in my head to think stuff through. Shout out my guy for changing my life.
Why do you like 80s disco culture and underground techno culture?
I think the 80's disco culture is just such a beautiful time to look at. Everyone was trying to push a positive message to the people and the clothes are amazing. No one were really giving a fuck about authority and fitting. The Techno culture now because it has the same attitude as disco culture just in present time and in such a different way. I love to party to 8am looking at the sun rise and the music is hypnotic. hehe!
What attracts you to the hippie culture?
Everyone was just spreading good vibes and loving each other and living free. Everything was about feeling happy and free and I just really love that mindset because that's what me and my friends do now in a virtual world. Virtual hippie age.
How old do you wish you were?
Age doesn't matter to me a 16 year old can have more knowledge than a 27 year old and the other way around.
