My Work Story

I’ve studied architecture in Denmark where I quickly found my passion for tiny spaces and space optimization. I found that the architectural profession wasn’t for me and I started documenting the tiny house community instead and our YouTube channel was born.

Our videos have been viewed more than 17 million times as I write this and I’m proud to call myself a full-time YouTuber and Blogger today. I also started the travel channel OneGirlOneSuitcase but I have paused it to focus on GoDownsize.

As a child, I spent countless hours in my dad’s woodworking workshop and that’s probably where my passion for furniture and design started.

Most of our travels happen with our RV which I’ve rebuilt completely together with Morten in order to make it the optimal home on wheels for our little family.
