Who am I?

Since 2014 I've been working to make the web more inclusive and user friendly. From the beautiful Tyrifjord near the Norwegian capital of Oslo I alternate between working from home and commuting to the Norwegian Mapping Authority to work with my awesome team.

Have a question? I'm always happy to answer!

What am I like?

I pride myself on being an innovative and knowledgable developer. When given the chance I revel in the ability to discover and develop new technology.

Leadership is important to ensure teams can realise their potential. My leadership style focuses on creating a culture of innovation by giving developers autonomy and focusing on skill development.
