He thrived, however, not where he was exposed to the unpleasantness of 'malicious persons', and obtained therefore 1710 Relocation, in that he was the governor of Akershus diocese, Prefect of Akershus County and adviser in the Castle Act (to 1722 when this was abolished).
      In 1714, he was commanded to operate in Overhofretten when needed was made, and in 1722 it was him and Prime Minister Peter Vogt ordered to matrikulere Akershus County. During the Swedes' Incident in 1716 he had and the highest officials leave Christiania.

      he owned a considerable estates in different places søndenfjælds. He led an elegant house and lived in Christiania on a big scale that exceeded his financial ability.
      He was a skilled Senior Official and Administrator and seems to have been popular, jovial and sociable. Governor D. Wibe said he had not spared toil, diligence and zeal in the king's service and had depenseret [?] money, so his survivorswere put in a struggling state.
