a bit about Jazz

What do you do and why do you do it?

I'm a TV Host, radio host and producer. Why? Because those are the only places where I can feel free and be myself. I love music, I love to be in front of a camera and behind it. Is just for fun and I can do it for a living!! It is super cool!

House of Cards, The Killing, Vikings, The Bridge (but the Danish and Swedish version) Sex and the City, Narcos.
