about Claus Bork...
Claus Bork was
born in the northern suburbs of Copenhagen on november 15. 1951.
His father was a naval officer and his mother took care of the home. He
started his 'carrier as a child' in Jaegersborg, a little to the north
of Copenhagen. Later, the family moved to Virum, where Claus and his
brother Michael grew up.
His parents were divorced when he was 8 years of age, and he moved
together with his mum, her new husband and his brother to
Charlottenlund when Claus was 10 years of age.
His childhood can, without any unnescessary dramatising be
characterized as a difficult one - and although he grew up in a rather
wealthy environment, he left school in the age of 14, where he was sent
to the island of Mors in northern Jutland. Things were not functioning
between him and his stepfather. He worked at the estate 'Ullerup', that
was owned by a member of his stepfathers family. Later he studied on
the farming school 'Lundby Landbrugsskole' (farmingschool) where he got
the first part of the official 'green card' as a farmer.
Many, both teachers and others, urged Claus to return to 'city-life' to
improve all of the talents that he so obviousely had, in the artistic
field. He ended up doing as they recommended, and went to Skaevinge
Forbundsskole, where he, in the age of 18 (a little later than others)
finally had his 'Realeksamin'.
After that he was educated as a technical assistant in the field of
building construction - and worked for a few years as such, in - among
others - the large Danish engineering company COWI, at that time named
He later went on
studying to Bygningskonstruktør
BTH. After some years of technical work in engineering offices, among
these working as an architect in the company 'Bülow & Nielsen'
he turned to the entrepreneur business, and was employed in the large
Danish construction company 'Højgaard & Schultz'.
has been working as an entrepreneur / Project Manager for many years,
and has indeed made his construction sites profitable and decent
businesses, through his creativity and courage in decisionmaking.
In the mid 70's - while he studied to become Bygningskonstruktør,
he started what he himself regarded as to be a second carréer - as
a rock musician. When he received the first loan as a student, he
bought his first Fender Stratocaster, and lived on almost nothing,
while he practised the playing of the guitar.
time, that he changed lane into working on construction sites, he
started the band Reflex, that was his first real attempt to make a
carréer out of it. Later the band Clockwork Orange followed.
This was his ultimate 'no guts - no glory' investment in a future as a
rockstar. Even though many prized this new band and the ambitions were
great and they all got rich in experience, they realized, that the
ambitions would never be fullfilled, and in the late 80's Claus Bork
left Clockwork Orange.
It was time for him to persue new goals, and these involved getting
married and having a family. In the mid 80's Claus Bork also got
heavily involved in a new carréer as an author of fantasy books.
He has published 15 books - 11 of which are fantasy for
children from app. 10 to 15 years of age - and 4 for adults.
years later, Claus has publishing his book: WTC-gate - the
unofficial story about what happened on september 11. 2001. This
fictional novel is far from the official explanation of what happened
that fatal day in 2001.
His latest manuscript 'Spin' is being published in 2016.
Claus Bork lives in Skånes Fagerhult in southern Sweden.
He is the proud father of 3 sons of 40, 26 and 23 years of age - and a daughter who's 18 years of age.
Furthermore he has 3 grandchildren.
He is divorced and lives together with his mastiff dog Lady and the cat The Tramp.
He has recorded the
album 'Retrolife' in
his own studio.
He has, in the same period, put the songs from Retrolife out on http://www.reverbnation.com/retrolifeproject
