Due to a mix of east and west, old and new, art and business, city and jungle—Hong Kong is one of the most diverse places on earth. This ability to live a thousand lives at once has drawn an ever growing wave of expats from around the world.

What do you do?
I do photography, creative direction and styling.

What are you wearing?
An Adidas tracksuit.

How did you ended up in Hong Kong?
I grew up in Denmark and studied dance, then moved to New York to take classes there. After that, I moved to Greece for a job as a dancer, and then to Hong Kong on a modeling contract and kind of found my base here.

How is Hong Kong different to the other places you've worked?
Hong Kong is forward thinking and there are people here from all over the world. Also I love the contrast! You really have the city life and the jungle life. Maybe there's a bit too many people (laughs). If you are in a rush you might get a bit annoyed walking in slow motion through the city.

What cool local spots can you recommend?
Locofama is my all time favourite restaurant. There are delicious organic food and amazing fresh juices. FLY has always been my party spot to go, but I change my mind daily, so you will find me everywhere!
