As early as age eight, he started making short films. He attended the Dutch Film Academy in Amsterdam where he received great acclaim for his student film Gabriel's Surprise. The film was later televised. In addition to several award-winning short films, music videos and commercials, he has directed the films Agent Cody Banks, One Night at McCool's, Hamilton and Lange Flate Ballær 2. He is also the co-director and producer of the first Long Flat Balls, a Norwegian film about soccer fans from the city of Fredrikstad, Norway.
