I am a photographer and artist based in Oslo, Norway. I graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2006. In 2014 I finished a year of Arts Management studies at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences. I am a member of UKS (The Young Artists Society) and NBK (The Association of Norwegian Visual Artists).

I believe in the possibilities that lie within social change. I'm interested in politics and dedicated to documenting grassroots movements and sustainable community projects locally and globally. I enjoy being out and about and spending time with inspiring people.  

I do work such as conceptual photography, documentary photography, photojournalism, event photography and portraiture. My photos have been shown at exhibitions and published in several newspapers, magazines, online publications, and the book Dyrk Byen! Håndbok for urbane bønder (Grow the City! Handbook for Urban Farmers).
