I am a consulting test manager and tester in agile, waterfall, and hybrid contexts in Copenhagen. I am a Danish, philosophically minded, educated, and enjoy the short power-distances part of Danish organizational culture as it enables me to create testing events which will teach people with power to make better decisions. I am an experienced thinker and facilitator of philosophical dialogue about values and testing-meetup organizer. I am also the father of four sons aged 14-22, married to Marianne on their 25th year with whom I recently renovated thE kitchen. In MY spare time, I chair the board of the local volunteers in the danish association for people with adhd.
