What drives me most is turning data into information and knowledge. My approach to information-driven analysis and design can be called "New Nordic" in the sense that I aim to exploit traditional Nordic ambitions such as superior quality, functionality, reliability and innovation; looking for new ways of communicating the structure and meaning of the business context.
A consultant by heart: I provide consulting, reviews and recommendations to data-driven projects:
> Business information analysis and design, incl. metadata and business vocabularies
> Data architecture
> Data modeling, not least graph models
> Database technologies (today mostly Neo4j)
I am an active writer and speaker. I live in Copenhagen, close to the airport. My firm, TF Informatik, was founded in 1995 and is registered in Denmark (DK66048950).

"I liked your articles on Dataversity having been involved in data modeling for several years now myself. The graph database world offered a completely new experience for modeling data in the life science space, and actually made it much more exciting than the relational world. Best regards!"
