In 2009 he joined Playdead where he created the sound for the video-game LIMBO which won the IndieCade Sound Award 2010.
He graduated as a composer from The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark in 2003 where he had studied composition with Karl Aage Rasmussen and Bent Sørensen. Following this, he went on to study electroacoustic composition under Professor Denis Smalley at City University, London.
