DE
Partner

Studied computer science in Aarhus, but then catapulted into the world: Started his career with five jobs, in five different countries, in five years. E.g. New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

Ran a consulting business in Switzerland, where he met his Swedish wife and they now live in Sweden.

He once climbed Mont Blanc and got to the top just in time for sunrise. Unfortunately it was so cold his contacts froze and stuck to his eye balls, so he couldn’t see anything. In true Leif fashion, he didn’t whine, but just walked down again, waited three weeks for his eyesight to recover, and then climbed the mountain again a year later - this time with glasses.

Now he sticks to Mountain biking in the Swedish forest and skiing in the alps. Dreams of opening Praqma Sydney and then retiring Down Under.
