I work primarily with communication, music, marketing and events.

I'm currently Head of Marketing and Communication at the annual Oslo Jazz Festival.

I also run a small record label called Sellout! Music.

I have a Masters degree in aesthetics and media science from the University of Oslo. My thesis focused on the viewer's experience of fiction in television series in the age of self representation via social media, and the confusion that comes when fiction enters reality and reality enters fiction. It is all very confusing.
