Born and raised in Copenhagen, Christian studied fine arts and began his film career as a runner. He tried his hand at production, quickly decided this was a terrible idea and moved to LA to study directing at the American Film Institute.
Christian spent several years in Los Angeles honing his craft before returning home to Denmark. He’s spent the last ten years immersed in the European market, directing dozens of commercials all over the continent as well as the US and UK.
Christian hit the jackpot when he met a good Aussie girl from the Gold Coast, as this Australian connection has brought him and his young family down under. Eight welcomes Christian to the Australasian market with open arms. His visual style has a distinct Scandinavian sensibility, both art direction and performance wise, bringing an exciting new dynamic to Eight’s roster. So far this talented Great Dane is displaying some promising antipodean qualities, braving Eight’s favourite go-to breakfast snack (Vegemite and avocado on toast, don’t knock it til you try it) and rolling with his new nickname “Baggo”.
