Back Home in Denmark

After 1½ awesome years in Mexico, I decided to move back to Denmark. I am truly grateful of the warm and friendly treatment I've recieved in Mexico, but ofcourse especially from friends and students at the conservatory.

So now I once again reside in the beautiful capital of my home country Copenhagen, from where I will be touring, teaching and composing music. It feels great to be back among friends and family, and soon I will be sharing more info on new projects coming up.


Maestro nuevo.

This August I started teaching at the jazz department at Universidad Veracruzana (JazzUV) in Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. It's been a hectic month so far, but also a lot of fun. I'm really greatful to have been offered this opportunity to work with some of the most talented mexican jazz musicians.

In other news I've also joined the great Xalapa Jazz Orchestra and have various new projects coming up this fall and next year.


Jazz Festival!

After 5 months in Mexico, I'm happy to be back in Denmark for the summer and of course for the jazz festivals. I've made an overview of where you can find me at the CPH Jazz Festival and the Aarhus Jazz Festival. I hope to see some familiar and peculiar faces.


I moved to Mexico!?

So I decided to move to Mexico for a while.. I have some new exciting projects coming up, but for the moment I won't be updating "upcoming concerts". I'll be based in Xalapa, Veracruz.
