As a journalist, I focus on new technologies, start-ups and entrepreneurs, all of which are disrupting whole industries at an ever-increasing pace. This is also true in tech-crazy Japan. The country is undergoing massive changes, both technologically and societally. I report on these changes and much more from my base in the world’s largest metropolitan area, Tokyo, which I share with my 35 million neighbours. I have spent more than ten years working in the media industry across four continents, and have spent time at broadsheets like Financial Times, The Times and The Engineer (Ingeniøren), as well as writing for a number of online media specialising in technology, science and finance. I have a degree in journalism from Roskilde University, Denmark, as well as a bachelor’s degree in Library and Information Science from the Royal Danish School of Library and Information Science.
