I live and work in Stavanger, Norway. At university I studied journalism and history of arts and culture. Formerly a journalist for a local newspaper I left my job in 2009 to work as a freelance photojournalist. My work has been featured in regional and national newspapers and magazines such as Verdens Gang, Stavanger Aftenblad, Dagens Næringsliv, Aftenposten/A-magasinet and Dagbladet.
In 2011 I became one of the co-founders of Plot documentary magazine, and I served as the publication’s picture editor until 2014. I was jury member of the 2013 Norwegian Picture of the Year, together with Thomas Borberg, picture editor of Politiken (dk) and Roger Turesson, former picture editor of Dagens Nyheter and Expressen (se). 2014-2015 I was working on the group project SeaChange, a photo documentary about young Europeans and how they cope with the pressing economic issues today. The project, curated by VII photographer Jocelyn Bain Hogg, culiminated in an exhibition touring European cities in 2015 and 2016. The project is also presented as a book, published by Press in 2015. The last couple of years I have been working on a photo documentary on the lives of offshore workers. "Oljeliv / Offshore ID" is currently exhibited at The Norwegian Petroleum Museum in Stavanger.
