Photo of MeHello – My name is Maria-Louisa Rosendal, the one who is behind the lines and lens of The Urban Outpost.

I have Danish roots and at the moment my urban outpost is situated in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. I have spent over 3 years here and still enjoy the Scottish way of living. We live in an area with the feel of; “small-village-in the-big-city” called Stockbridge. Our home is an old town house near the river, with a stamp of a garden, cats and bugs…and we are loving it!

Check out my other half at Images by Bay and my NEW blog with my photography – Images by Rosendal.

Who am I? – I’m a sister-daughter-friend-girlfriend-product designer and a photographer.  I’m a “shoot chick” who explores the world with my Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera or iPhone. I am always ready for new adventures. I love the sea, the wind and a stroll down the beach. I am a coffee addict, who likes to “hygge” (Danish word for Scandinavian cosiness). The active me is kayaking, practising Qi Gong/Yoga and trekking in the wild. I love music, art and retro design. Furthermore I am a bit of a environmentalist – riding on the green wave: Reduce-Reuse and Recycle.

On paper I am a Market Economist with Entrepreneurship from Copenhagen Business College: Niels Brock. I topped up  my degree as I fell in love with student life and got the opportunity to study abroad in the lovely Scottish capital: Edinburgh. I was rewarded with a distinction - BA in Marketing Management with Entrepreneurship at Edinburgh Napier University. Before the books I worked for several years in different shops as a saleswoman in the home décor area and been a assistant for an interior designer. Overseen production in India, worked as a buyer and a shoe/bag designer. Furthermore done field research for a new venture in India on behalf of BoConcept and have a sales degree in home décor and sales from IKEA.
