Like most journalists in Copenhagen, I've written about the usual suspects: happiness, hygge, and cycling. (I think it's compulsory.)
But I prefer writing about original topics such as Copenhagen Suborbitals—the world's only amateur manned spaceflight programme. Or the Danish boarding school that teaches classes through live action role-play. Or Copenhagen’s surprising tolerance of illegally built DIY skate-parks.
I love writing about food and drink, too—and am more interested in how it's produced than in the latest hot restaurant. I've written about food for the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Evening Standard, National Geographic Traveller, and Vice. Amd for the sake of a good story, I've learnt to bake rye bread, brew beer, and pickle vegetables. I also entered the official Danish snaps-making competition. (Spoiler alert: I didn't win.)
I've written travel pieces, too, for Lonely Planet, Porter & Sail, and several inflight magazines. In the past two years, I've written about the Northern Lights in Finnish Lapland; the smokehouses of Bornholm; and Sweden's most diverse city, Malmö.
