About me

Ada was born in Denmark in 1975 and grew up in a community of historians in a 16th century renaissance castle north of Copenhagen. She moved to New York at age twenty to study at School of Visual Arts but ended up waitressing in nightclubs instead.


Later she assisted fashion photographer Terry Richardson around the time when he was making the ‘Terryworld’ book and made motorcycle trips around the US with her camera and boyfriend.


After four years as an illegal immigrant in New York City she moved back to Denmark and became a member of the Copenhagen based filmmaker collective Super 16. Ada is a self taught filmmaker and and has shot documentaries for Nordic and International broadcasters in the US, China, Russia, Singapore, Finland and England.
