Where are you originally from and what do you do for a living?
I live in Copenhagen, Denmark with my husband and daughter. Here I am studying for my Masters in Digital Design & Communication. I also work as a web designer – together with two friends I make web sites and graphic design under the name Youngest.
How does a regular working day look like for you?
I get up every day around 7 when my daughter wakes up. When she is off to day care I either work from home on different web projects or go to school at the IT University of Copenhagen. After my daughter comes home we all spend a couple of hours playing and cooking and eating dinner and at night I often work until I remember that I have to get up early in the morning.
What’s on your to-do list?

Blogging, all my different projects, home work -and preparing food for my birthday this weekend.[/column]

What is influencing and inspiring you right now?
Blogs are a constant source of inspiration. When ever I feel I’m loosing my inspiration I look through links on blogs I like and always find something new that gets me going. Also my everyday life inspires me. Being able to work on stuff I like is really exciting.
What’s your top tip to anyone who want’s to pursue a career in your field?
The beauty of web design is, that if you have a computer and an internet connection, nothing can stop you. You can just dive into it and explore code, design and all the endless possibilities out there. Once you learn one technique, a code language for example, new things appear and you can only try to keep up.
What would you like to do in the future?
I would feel very lucky if I get to keep working with digital design -my dream is to have a job where I can work with my best friends and still have time for my family.
