I’m on the way to Québec City for the Sid Lee winter party. Then of to start a ‘new life’ in Amsterdam tomorrow! Will update the blog once the smoke settles - cheers kRiSs
Stumbled upon this flickr set… liking it! And also there has been a small change of plans… I’m leaving for Montréal tomorrow, and staying for 3 weeks before going to Amsterdam. Mes amis in Montréal - see you soon!
Hi all. I’m back from a nice long christmas holiday with my girlfriend and family in Sweden, far away from wifi hotspots and even my iPhone was disconnected. Needless to say that it’s been a little quite here on the blog. While I slowly get back to civilization I leave you with these stunning photos from the year coming to an end.
Things have been quite on the blog regarding my travel escapades. By now most of you have already seen the Adidas House Party spot, and generally I’ve just been really busy here at Sid Lee (Montréal) working on the many exiting new concepts and projects that will extend this lovely campaign in the year to come - of which the first couple of things will launch already in january… will keep you updated here.
Montréal is a lovely city. Coming from Copenhagen and living in New York for some months, this city is definitely a fine blend of european and north american culture that suits me very well. The nightlife in the city is also alive and kicking - despite the city’s size and the cold weather.
People don’t go into hibernation, which I sometimes find is the case in DK during the winter. Speaking of the weather, it gets pretty damn cold here! But across the board I find it more pleasant than the cold, windy and rainy winter weather of Denmark - I mean at least the sun shines sometimes!
I’ve made some great friends through work and also reunited with some old buddies. Everyone has made my stay here easy and comfortable and I’m kinda sad to leave them so soon… Jup that’s right - I’m going back. I’ll be spending the Christmas holidays in Denmark and Sweden for some good ol’ fashioned Jule hygge. Then I’ll be off to Amsterdam in the beginning of january where I’ll help power up the all new Sid Lee office. So if anyone have some good advice on living in Amsterdam (apartments, places to go, people to see) please hit me up.
I’m working on getting my iPhone photo stream integrated on the blog. But besides those I’ve taking a bunch of photos from my stay in Montréal, take a peak at them here:
A little while back my bro introduced me to Mick Boogie and his Mixtapes. Viva La Hova being the latest that sees original beats fused with Coldplay samples all with Jay-Z verses laced on top - it’s definitely recommendable: Download it here.
Tonight I got invited to go see him perform at Bluedog Lounge here in Montréal, so looking forward to that!
Time for an update on my whereabouts these days. After a little under 2 months in the snug comfort of home (Copenhagen), working for various clients and spending a great time freelancing for the danish advertising agency WDP, I’m finally back to being an adventurous traveller.
My plan was to head back to NYC where I had a couple of exciting opportunities, but when Sid Lee presented me with the chance to work on Adidas Originals there was no doubt in my mind: I had to go back over the atlantic and join their talented people in Montréal.
So here I am, arrived yesterday and still jet-lacked, but eagerly anticipating the coming challenges in the months to come. I live at the wonderful Sid Lee Loft situated near Petite Italie, it seems like a authentic and nice neighborhood and I’m looking forward to explore it more, as well as practice my française.
Today I’ve been on an extensive tour du Sid Lee, checking out their immense offices, saying hi to all my new colleagues, and last but not least enjoying the food in the Sid Licious Bistro.
So that’s about it for now, I’ll will keep you updated on my escapades here on the blog and post some pictures once I get around to that. Until then you can check out some of my mobile uploads here.
À Bientôt! To be continued…
I can’t really believe it myself, but 3 months has gone by since I came to New York, and since I started this blog, partly as an excuse for not writing personal mails to my friends and family… sorry. The summer is nearing an end and now it’s time to leave this fantastic city and head back to Copenhagen and fall.
I have made fabulous new friends, worked on some amazing projects, partied long and hard, seen some crazy shit, heard some wicked concerts, done insane shopping, used too much money and generally just had a blast.
The reason for coming here at the first place was to see how I would like living in this fast-paced and hectic city. New York has not succeeded in intimidating me… I will definitely return! And this time settling down for longer. For updates on this… stay tuned to the blog.
Photos from my last month in NYC can be seen on FB:

See you in CPH! xx kRiSs
Finally!… I’ve uploaded New photos from New York on my facebook. This time the albums include pictures from my road trip on Long Island as well as from a fucking awesome Santogold / Diplo / Atrak concert in Central Park.
The line for the concert was insane… I’m starting to get used to that though, it’s seems to me that everything in NYC requires standing in line and I must say that new yorkers have a very good line-culture in regards to being patient and not cheating. I recorded a small video of the line on my camera, check it out here:

Montauk is known for it’s surf. I’ve already shopped a small bodyboard - let’s go!
Hey it’s been a while since the last post, so I just thought I would give you a little sign of life.
Last week kept me busy, my girlfriend Pernille finally came over to visit after successfully completing her exams back in Copenhagen (Congrats Pe!), and also I had a lot of work at Hungry Elephant that I needed to finish before taking a week off (whoohoo).
I wanted to get out of the city and get some fresh air, see some of the countryside and most of all go to the beach. So after celebrating 4th July with fireworks and a ‘dansker’ party in Greenpoint, Brooklyn - we rented a car and set out on a little 5 day road trip on Long Island. We decided to drive up Route 25A instead of The Long Island Highway which was nice ’cause it makes it’s way through wineries, winsome villages and sandy vistas, and also historic sights like Roosevelt’s old mansion on Sagamore Hill. Later we did some shopping at the Tanger Outlets (which consists of more than 165 brand name outlet’s), before heading down to South Hamptons.
Right now I’m writing from our neat little Montauk Motel after spending most of the day at the beach and by the pool. Montauk is a small village situated at the tip of the South Fork of Long Island (Montauk plays a prominent role in Michel Gondry’s film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. - which I really like!) We’re going to stay here and relax the next couple of days… I’ll upload some NY and Montauk pics once we get back to the city.
On request from friends and family I uploaded more pics from my stay in New York on my Facebook.
