Hi there. I’m Alexander, journalist and social editor at Politiken, specializing in digital journalism, social media and video.

So what do I do?

I’ve studied journalism, digital storytelling, communication, history and design. As a result, I enjoy both research, writing, filming and of course publishing the story in the best form possible. Especially on social media. I like to do good storytelling; from the research to the live field reporting to the post-production and reportage feature.

Currently I’m working with Politiken as an editor, developing our social media presence on Facebook, Instagram and more. I also work in other fields such as newsletter editing and – of course – good ol’ article writing. In particular I have made stories on the impact social media can have in our lives as well as numerous travel reportages.

Previous and current partners

Besides Politiken I sometimes work as a media trainer, holding lectures in cooperation with Kaas & Muldvad amongst others.  I also take photographs, and they sometimes make it to various publications.

Recently I’ve been working with: Kristeligt Dagblad, The Center for Journalism Studies at The University of Southern Denmark and The Danish Daily Information, The Danish Broadcasting Corporation – DR.DK, Vice.com, Jydske Vestkysten, Netudgaven, and Modkraft.dk.

I also ran a punk and hardcore zine called Living In The City, and I have been a contributor to the long-running punk mag Maximum Rock’N’Roll.
