Strange was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and studied economics at Aarhus University 1971-73; he served in the Danish army as a sergeant in the field artillery. From 1974, Strange worked in the offshore oil industry in the North Sea and later in South-east Asia and China as a field services engineer; he retired from the oil business in 1986 as a field services supervisor. Since then, Strange has worked for the Danish Ornithological Society (as international officer 1994-1996), for Nature's Niche Pte Ltd (as marketing manager 1999-2008) and for Draco Publishing and Distribution Pte Ltd (as managing director 2008-2013).

Before and after his oil field career, Strange was an active bird photographer, writer, and editor. He has authored many books, especially about rainforest birds in the South-east Asian region. He was editor-in-chief of Nature Watch, the official magazine of Nature Society (Singapore) from 2009-2012, and he is currently Honorary Secretary for that society. In 2014 he qualified from the Institute of Banking and Finance as a financial fund manager and adviser.
