Ingeborg's first proper writing experience was as an editorial intern in her hometown, Copenhagen, and later for Vice Magazine in Berlin. After practicing her German cases, and interviewing everyone from exorcists to a woman who married the Berlin wall (pre-demolition), she was granted a scholarship for an exchange year at UCLA, where she completed her BA in philosophy with a minor in Creative Writing. Having developed a taste for being an immigrant and writing fiction, she applied to the NFTS.

At the NFTS, Ingeborg wrote several short films, including the fiction graduation film VOLUME, directed by Mahalia Belo, and two animation graduation films.

Her short play with the long title, Whatever happened to the disease formerly known as swine flu? earned her a place on the Royal Court Young Writers Programme, where she wrote a full-length play, alongside developing several feature scripts and television ideas at the NFTS. She also co-wrote a book about modern jurisprudence, but that’s another story.
