Native of Denmark, who have spent the past 6 years living abroad. Moved to Toronto in 2018 with my wife Sinduja, and we are dreaming of adding a little pupper to the family soon. Tech Product & Delivery professional, with experience in corporate innovation and digital consulting. Currently focused on trying to help beauty industry freelancers succeed through our platform Blushlist.com.
My wife and I just came back from Europe, where we went to have our civil wedding ceremony in my hometown in Denmark. It was a fantastic party in a beautiful old barn that is going to be torn down in a couple of weeks. We got to have the last party ever to be held there!
Since we spent three years living in France, one of our favourite places to shop in Toronto is the Cheese Boutique by South Kingsway.
I am usually reading a couple of books at a time because I quickly get bored. Right now, I am reading a very odd pairing—The 5am Club and Why We Sleep. One tells me to get up at 5am and the other tells me to get at least eight hours of sleep every night…
For the past four months, I have been working on creating the MVP of a marketplace webapp connecting clients to makeup artists called Blushlist. We are currently doing beta testing with the makeup artists, and focusing on trying to understand how we can bring them value outside of connecting them with clients. Our first immediate goal is to have them see us as a better alternative to creating their own website, which some of them do to help streamline their clients’ booking requests. Then, we want to add on features to help them easier manage their overall business, and in that way, build the supply side of the marketplace.
Aside from that, I am, by the way, also looking for work in the digital product space. Should anyone know of any opportunities in Product, Scrum, or Innovation Roles, I would be happy to hear more!
A few quotes I keep above my kanban board at home.
“Perfection is the enemy of Progress.” & “Done is better than perfect.”
