I am a 28 year old award-winning visual storyteller from Norway with 6 years experience working as an international photojournalist.
The past two years I have been based in Los Angeles. During this time I have travelled to 25 states and worked on news stories such as presidential campaigns, the opioid crisis, NATO military meetings, school shootings, natural catastrophes as well as magazine features about weed nuns, drag shows, goat yoga, female gun owners and cookie-baking gang members.
Currently I’m learning more about the emerging new platforms for storytelling trough a STEM-masterprogram in Digital Social Media at USC. I also hold a BA in Photojournalism from Oslo.
My heart beats for stories that report on new trends and shifts in society, women's rights and emerging technology. I strongly believe in the power of the story as the most effective way of reaching people in an unforgettable way.
My stories has been published in many newspapers and magazines around the world including The New York Times (USA) Die Welt (Germany) and Marie Claire International.
