Roland is born in Scotland. Manager of Bridgecenter Nordsjælland since the beginning 1989. Head of 8 of the 23 clubs at the Center and of course is the person who is always there when needed. In this way the members are fairly satisfied. Roland has been teaching bridge for more than 30 years and played in the danish elite for the approx. same period. At the time Roland strted the Bridgecenter he had to give up to play top bridge himself.

Best known as BBO Vugraph Coordinator, sleep does not exist in his vocabulary, though he speaks five languages: Danish, English, German, Hebrew and Swedish. His expertise includes winning loads of cokes from Richie Reisig during broadcasts, but does not extend to computers. He claims to be absolutely clueless as far as computers are concerned (where is the on/off button?)
