About Thomas Nørremark

I'm @thomasnoerremark, 40 years old, born and raised in Aarhus. I work as a Social Media Manager and spend a lot of time on Instagram, so I see everything visually in squares. My girlfriend and I live in the city center and I love to explore this little beauty of a city, that keeps showing itself from new angles all the time. When I'm not working, I ride my bicycle and shoot pictures with other instagrammers. Love to travel the world and go exploring :)
