I am a 27 year old visual journalist based in Oslo, Norway. I work with stills, video and text, in addition to interactive storytelling.
My work has been published in the majority of Norwegian newspapers, and I mainly work for clients such as VG, Aftenposten and The New York Times.

As a photographer, I am very versatile and can take on most assignments.  I’m working with both stills and video.
I am available for photo assignments. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

In 2017 I was named by Forbes Magazine to be one of 30 young media entrepreneurs “defining the ever-shifting world of news and content.”
