A beast trapped in an architects body - or maybe it's the other way around!

Cand. Arch. & Industrial Designer mDD

ADAPT Lvl. 3 certified coach


Through his education and many years of experience as both P.E. teacher/practitioner and architect/designer, Mikkel has a well founded background in the many aspects of conveying movement and how to create the physical framework for that movement. He is the connection, or interpretor if you will, between the arts. Mikkel is also engaged at a political level, specifically working towards better conditions for self-organized activity - or street sports as some like to call it.  

Mikkel has a movement background in capoeira, skateboarding and basketball. Performing for many years with capoeira and a few with parkour, he has now turned his attention to what goes on behind the scenes, creating opportunities for the next generation of talent.

Mikkel basically handles everything relating to aesthetics with Street Movement - architectural design, graphics, choreography, staging etc.
