About

I am a CG generalist born in Denmark in 1988 and I specialize in Rigging and Scripting for all purposes.
I have a bachelor’s degree in computer graphics arts from The Animation Workshop as well as a higher business exam from South Zeeland Business college.
Additionally I have an exam from the Copenhagen school of business and design.
I am currently working in the VFX industry as a rigger and generalist in London.
Previously I worked at Double Negative, Storm Studios and MPC London.
I have a traditional 2D artist background and I am a proficient illustrator/painter.
That being said, my main focus and primary area of expertise is rigging and scripting for Maya, but with the artistic background I believe that I have a better basis for understanding how geometry should deform in convincing and aesthetically pleasing ways.

In my spare time i like to cook and plate for fine dining and be active bouldering and running.

  1. Bjorn, just bought your yeti videos. I’m off to China to help a studio out using yeti. Do you know if the videos are streamed or can I download them, I wasn’t sure how the gumroad worked. I see there on my phone now but when I get to China, where youtube is banned, I was hoping to have access to them.

    Thanks so much, I look forward to absorbing the info.

  2. Hey Bjorn,

    I was wondering if you’ll be doing a facial rigging tutorial like Swiftsweet. I would really to purchase this tutorial.
