I got my first camera when I was seven years old. It was a polaroid camera, and I loved it. From that day on I took pictures of everything and anything. Like the time I documented the death of a family member, Totto, the budgie. That was my first documentary project, although I didn't know that then.

Since then I have played and worked with photography. With a BA Honours in Media, Communications and Sociology from Goldsmiths College, University of London I started in the arts and did a lot of fun projects that I still cherish to this day. I added to my portfolio with editorial and commercial assignments. Amongst others I have worked for: Kulturetaten, Redd Barna, OsloMet (former HiOA), Plan Norge, Hygge, Flow, Rikskonsertene, Kamille, Henne, KK, Norsk Ukeblad, Hjemmet, Ringnes, Advokatforeningen, Statnett, Dagbladet Søndag, Adresseavisen, Mann, NO, Scanpix Creative, Det Nye, Woman, Natt&Dag, Mix Mag, Rom Eiendom, Backstage Management, and many more.
