BIOGRAPHY

I was born on 10th of November 1974 in Aalborg. In 1986 my mother began dancing traditional squaredance. After a couple of years, the club where she was dancing, started doing New Style Square Dance. My father started dancing in 1987.

In the spring of 1989, the club had a demo, which I attended; this would be a one-off event (or so I believed). In the fall of 1989 I attended the World Square Dance Convention in Gothenburg, Sweden. This was the first time I saw Modern Western Square Dancing.

In the fall of 1989, the club started doing Modern Western Square Dancing. Now there was only one problem - the club didn't have an instructor or caller. Things happened, so I was designated to flip the tapes that we used. After a short while, I became interested in how calling was done.

Later that fall, I started looking into it.
In January 1990 I went to my first caller school with Robert BjŲrk and Ingvar Pettersson. During 1990 I attended 3 schools with Robert and Ingvar. In 1991 I attended a caller school with Don Beck and Al Stevens.
Since 1990 I have been invited to Call at the National Convention in Denmark three times and the Swedish Convention once.
I have also been featured as a Caller on the European Square Dance Convention in 1997 (Hocheim in Germany), and 2002 (Copenhagen in Denmark).

Additionally, I have been Calling, at Special Dances in Germany, Poland, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, USA and Canada.

I am a member of Callerlab, and currently serve as vice president in the Danish Caller Association "CSD-Denmark".

In 1996 I received an invitation to become a Staff Caller for Sting Records, which has given me a lot of good times during the past few years.

In october 2006 I became part-owner of new-beat - by doing this I steped down from Sting.
