About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Off to Kyushu! 九州へ!

ABOUT ME

Hi there.

I am a thirty-something Norwegian living in Tokyo, where I do all sorts of freelance work. I translate novels from Japanese to Norwegian, translate user manuals, teach Norwegian, organize DJ events, do work for media, write articles etc.

When I don't have work I read, study for the JLPT level 1, watch movies and hang out at bars and clubs.

A good life :-)
