I’m a freelance tech-journalist, editor and photographer with 20 years of experience in all corners of the news industry. And I still love my job.
I have worked – and continue to work for a variety of large news organizations, the public sector and trade unions. I’m an experienced journalist, sub-editor and commissioning news editor.
Finally I’m co-founder of “Twitterfolk” – three sites which provides users with a constant overview of the most important tweets of 7.500 Danish journalists, media sites, politicians and CEO’s in Denmark: Twitterjournalister.dk, Twitterpolitikere.dk and Twitterchefer.dk.
What can you hire me for?
- Writing articles
For the last 8 years I’ve been writing mainly about tech-related matters in all its diversity – from cloud computing to women in tech and continuing education.

- Ghost writing
I’ll write editorial, leading articles and blog postings for your chairman or CEO when they are busy running the organization.
Case: Blog posting on Computerworld.dk
SAMDATA-formand: Drengerøvskulturen skader IT-branchen
- Strategic advice / Social media / press relations
Over the years I have arranged innovation conferences and public panel discussions for the media industry. I have taught leaders and journalists on how to use Twitter and other social platforms for both research and added impact in the media. And off course I advice and help companies with press relations.
CASE: I was initiator and co-organizer of the first Danish innovation camp for the news industry: Startup Weekend Copenhagen Media. (Article in Danish about the conference)
- “Ernst, What else could you do for us?”
My customers often contact me with a very specific project or task in mind: “Can you write an article about X, Y and Z?”. Often I do just that: I get the job done and write the article.
But I’ve worked with innovation, strategy, new media, social media and the entire news industry for more than 20 years. You’ll get a lot more value, if you simply ask: “Ernst, What else could you do for us”.
Wait – a journalist with a camera?
I’ve always loved photographing, so when I became a freelancer, it finally made sense to combine the two sides of the journalism-trade.
The most common assignment I get is taking portraits of the people I interview, but I also photograph at full day events and conferences.
