I was born in 1966 on the Funen island in Denmark, being the oldest of three. I graduated from the Conservatory in Aarhus in 1995 with saxophone as my major, and since then I've been making a living playing and teaching music.
I love jazz because it's so different than pop and has an emotional pull that other music does not have.
I was first exposed to jazz when I saw Dave Brubeck in 1974.
The first jazz record I bought was Bitches Brew by Miles Davis.
