Kent Eskildsen

Logical minded. Creative at heart.

Hi, I am Kent

Let me introduce myself! Currently, I am travelling the world while working remotely.

I am addicted to coffee and obsessed with living a minimalist lifestyle. I like to convince myself I am creative and excel at working independently and remotely. Truth be told,
I am bad at it, yet if I keep convincing myself, I might get there one day.

If I were going to describe myself with three words, it would be diligent, adaptable and a team player.


The world is becoming increasingly interconnected, with different people working together and solving complex issues.  As a generalist, I can step back and acknowledge the wide spectrum of topics, analyze its complex relations and effectively communicate the results.
