About me

The short version: Communications manager, photographer, a former journalist, and traveler. And with a heart for Asia 🙂

I am the type of guy who loves getting myself involved in new projects, also those I where I don´t really have the necessary experience and knowledge. Why? Because the process of getting to know a new area is in itself a stimulating and fun challenge.

I have worked in the media business all my professional life but in very different positions. Most of my career has been in Schibsted Media Group and Norway´s largest newspaper, Aftenposten.  Over the years I have been a journalist, correspondent in Asia, in charge of Aftenposten´s editorial production, digital strategist, in charge of joint digital services in consumer news for five media houses and more.  I also started Schibsted Tech Polska in Krakow, Poland and was instrumental in growing it.

My current role is a communications manager for product & tech in Schibsted.

This is my personal web site. It will be used for occasional blogging about issues I care about – for instance photography. Most content will be in English, but some will also be written in Norwegian.
