I was born in Copenhagen, but two years later my family and I traveled around the world spending a few years here and there. This has given me an interest in international relations, since I have attended several international schools. Here are some examples: Marymount International School in Rome, Italy, and Woodstock School, Mussoorie, India. My class teacher in high school, Vera Grace Frances (later married Clark), published in 1961 a collection of poems "I have loved beauty."
After having taken the British Senior Cambridge Exam in India I attended a French high school, so I could learn more French. Now, that school is called Lycee Marie de Champagne in the city of Troyes, France, situated 160 km southeast of Paris.
Then, I attended The University of Copenhagen, a Danish University, and graduated with a master's degree in economics.
In 1984-1985 I spent a year's leave of absence from my job in "Statistics Denmark" working in an old peoples' home in Jerusalem, Israel. Later, I also went to private homes to help the elderly by giving them a bath, shopping or just talking. My work was assigned to me through the municipality of Jerusalem. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had! Aside from taking care of the elderly I learned Hebrew in order to be able to communicate with the elderly, who were mostly Sephardic (oriental) Jews. Now, that we have internet it is possible to keep track of Israeli news presented from the Israeli point of view through Jerusalem Post ahavat-israel.com and The Times of Israel
In my leisure time I enjoy walking, gym, swimming, reading and writing and until February 2024 travel to 62 countries, of which I have lived in 6.- During some years I have been interested in genealogy.
Since I had a life changing experience in 1982, I encourage others to open their hearts to faith rooted in the Bible.
Since January 2008 I have attended an interdenominational Bible School Scandinavan Academy for Leadership and Theology (SALT - now ALT after the school's reconstruction) first in Copenhagen and from 2009 in Sweden at Hyllie Park, Malmoe. and Örebro TSchool of Theology.
In June 2012 I completed 4 1/2 years of 13 theological couses. From autumn 2012 I have been a bookreviewer at the Christian news weekly, Udfordringen i.e. The Challenge.
