About

What drives me as a designer is curiosity. Identifying problems people are facing during their everyday life and providing the best solution possible leaving an impact on their lives is what keeps me going. I have spent a great amount of my childhood in my parents workshop discovering tools and materials, combining things to see what happens. Until today I enjoy building physical prototypes and models, validating design explorations and ideas be it yellow foam or battery powered. I am an eager inventor who does not get discouraged easily, even though things might seem unlikely or undoable. Working on a husky farm in northern Norway or climbing a mountain at midnight to catch the rising sun with my camera turned me into a versatile designer and keeps me exited about every new discovery, topic and problem that I face.
