About me

My background
Born in Oslo, Norway. Studied in Perth, Australia. After that I went back to Oslo for some years, before moving to Hannover in 2016. Here I live with my wife and 3 kids.

What I do
I run a little web agency in Oslo, Norway together with my colleague Stig Taftø. It is called Vasser, and is a small design and development agency.

Music
I was born into a house of musicians, and I've been playing guitar since I was a kid.

Photography
I got a Fujifilm X10 back in 2012, and have sticked with Fujifilm ever since. Particularly enjoyed my X100S. Now I use a X-E3 with 35mm f1.4.
I'm not a great photographer, but I love how the photos turn out compared to those from my phone, and I also love the tactile sensation of the cameras.

Reading
I love reading. I didn't growing up, but have learned to enjoy it a lot now midways through my 30s. Especially non-fiction books.
Some favorites include "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman", "Man’s Search for Meaning" and "Living with a SEAL".

Family
Most of my time and energy outside of work goes to spending time with my family.

Minimalism
I believe in the classic Fight Club quote "The things you own end up owning you."

Still, I'm not a minimalist in the Marie Kondo way. I have a lot of stuff accumulated over the years, and as much as I like simplicity, I hate waste.
My main way of coping is to be very considerate when buying new stuff. Most of the time I don't need it, and have gotten way better over the years at realizing this.

People compass
I have a selected few people I get a lot of inspiration from, and have for a long period of time.

The list of known people include Derek Sivers, Steve Jobs, Tobias Van Schneider, Chris Coyier, John Mayer, Petter Stordalen, Ryan Holiday, Billy Oppenheimer and Jason Fried (I know… All guys… :/).
