He has a background as a K-12 teacher, teaching math, arts and music from 2003 – 2018. In 2014 he discovered maker-technologies through the fablab@school project in Denmark, and they became an integrated part of the subjects he taught.

Further he works closely with researchers from University of South Denmark (SDU) around different areas of investigation e.g. the use of tangible objects as a mediatings means for Computational Thinking and problem-solving.
