Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.


In my photography and filmmaking I try not only capture what’s there, but also the subjective emotion of being there, in that very moment.

As a Norwegian I was born and raised with the Scandinavian philosophy of outdoor life called «friluftsliv», which describes a way of life that is spent exploring and appreciating nature.

When I cycled across Africa in 2011 I discovered my passion for adventure and slow traveling which ultimately led me to buy a sailboat in 2015. I lived aboard for two years and ended up sailing along the Norwegian coast singlehanded for three months during winter.

Today I live in Bergen, Norway and work in collaboration with Eie Eiendomsmegling and Reklamekollektivet among others.

Whenever I’m not on a job I spend my time exploring the vast amounts of mountains, fjords and islands here in Norway.
