About Me

I'm a rather curious fellow from Norway. Nowdays, I work primarily in warzones and areas struck by natural disasters. Before this, I was a student trying to travel and live abroad as much as possible. I am mostly interested in places untouched by tourism, and usually thrive the most under rough conditions. I don't really have any extraordinary skills, but I do find interest in almost every country.

Seeking adventure and fun loving souls, feel free to message me :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I participated in a long term humanitarian emergency response program in the most beautiful country in the world, Nepal, after the country was struck by an earthquake in April 2015. There, I ended up living by the foot of the giant mountain of Manaslu. I got the opportunity to establish a team and coordinate various activities in order to provide sufficient amounts of drinking water and prevent outbreaks of diseases in a heavily devastated region with a population of about 25.000 people. I consider myself fortunate for having the opportunity to make a difference for so many people.

Since then I have taken on greater challenges, but this mission was particularly memorable because it was how it all started for me.
