What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music? Going to my first show on my own at 14, and realising the magic of seeing my favourite music being played right in front of me.
What are your favourite Danish acts? Yung, Holm and Mew, of course!
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down? Too tough! I promoted The Bronx at my old venue in 2012 (I think). Working with one of my favourite bands in a 250 capacity sold out show with everyone going crazy.
