My Bio Born in Oslo, Norway, in 1972, I relocated to London in '82 and spent the next 16 years in England and Scotland before returning to the homeland in '97. Those years in various Norwegian, English and international schools seem to have done their part in molding me into a member of our world society rather than any particular nationality. That feeling is reinforced each time I travel and get the chance to encounter the wonderful myriad of contrasting cultures and people on our planet.

While doing an MA in Economics at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (1991-95) I started taking a more serious interest in photography and exploring what can only be described as my creative forces - more precisely, within the sphere of audiovisuality. Today I continue to nurture my passion for what I find esthetic to my eyes and ears.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Pictures from my trip to Nepal in 2006, a three week adventure which included a Nepalese wedding, work in the field with Save The Children Norway in Nepal and a 3-day workshop for 30 local women humanitarian workers.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
