I am an experienced database professional with more than 30 years on the IT vendor side and as an independent consultant. I have worked with databases and data modeling since the late 70s. Since 1995 primarily on data warehouse projects, but today I work mostly with graph database technology. I have a strong urge to visualize everything as graphs - also datamodels.

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:
  • Data architecture
  • Data modeling for NoSQL and SQL
  • Metadata recycling (transform legacy data models into new)
  • Business information analysis, incl. metadata and business vocabularies
  • Database technologies, not least graph models
  • Maintaining the graph data modeling tools' Hall of Fame!

I am an active writer and speaker. I live in Copenhagen, close to the airport. My company, TF Informatik, was founded in 1995 and is registered in Denmark (DK66048950).
