I graduated from the University of Copenhagen and wrote my master's thesis on the religious aspects of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). From 2005 to 2010 I worked as external lecturer at the Section of Religion, Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies, University of Copenhagen. In recent years I have worked as a project team member at Kroppedal Museum, Denmark. Here, I conducted a historical survey of Danish Astronomy (1950 to today) with Karin Tybjerg and a research project on the collaboration between the industry and universities in the creation of the Danish Oersted Satellite. The latter was carried out between Kroppedal Museum, the department of the History of Technology Division at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and Denmark's Technical Museum. My primary research area is religious and cultural aspects of SETI, spaceflight, and space exploration, but I'm also doing a bit of research on prehistoric religion in the Scandinavian Bronze Age. Currently I am researching the astrocultural context of the LEGO Group's LEGOLAND Space theme, 1978-80 and working of refining a new analytical concept, Outer Space Religion, in relation to, for example, James Cameron's Avatar. Apart from that I give lectures and work as a freelance author and journalist. I am an independent scholar.
