Born in the western part of
Denmark in the glorious year of 1966.
I didn't know what to do
after the gymnasium (equivalent to high school) so I joined the Royal
Danish Air force, thinking I would know what I wanted within a year or
Well, time flies when you
are having fun, so my career as a professional soldier lasted 10 years
Just for information; HAWK is a SAM system. SAM meaning Surface-to-Air-Missile. The
missile system and the 8 squadrons placed in Denmark was closed down in
the beginning of 2005. Take a look at my former squadron
Due to the rightful
diminishing of funds for the armed forces after the collapse of the
regimes in eastern Europe, I decided now was a good time to make a career
I did by studying to be a laboratory technician and
for almost 11 years I worked in the
department of Formulation Development for an agro-chemical company,
so many years it was time to seek new challenges, and I
moved focus from pesticides to food and feed, at Eurofins-Steins.
almost 6 years at Eurofins-Steins, the company decided to close all
activity in my town and move the laboratory, and as I wasn't interested in
making the move to the new site, I returned to chemistry and real
production, and I am now employed at Lundbeck, a pharmaceutical company,
where I analyse raw materials, intermediates and API's, which mean the
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient.
I'm a little of a technical
buff and I simply love fiddling with the various apparatus and machinery used to
develop and test the products.
This interest for technique
can also be seen in some of my interests outside work.
