About Me

CURRENT MISSION

hear, tell, see, share, be.

ABOUT ME

Enthusiastic, friendly and perhaps a bit eccentric. My mother is Norwegian (Bomlo) and my father English (Notting Hill west London). I feel like I have led a lucky life so far and I want to share stories, experiences, languages and good times with other people from around the world!

PHILOSOPHY

We are responsible to all our fellow human beings, our planet and ourselves. Every action we take has consequences. Share all you have. Understand that to be clever is to realize how little one really knows about anything. Start creating the world you want to live in by positivity and positive action.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went swimming in a hole in the ice of a frozen lake in the Hardanger Vidda (Norway). Have not been cold since.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some good Norwegian recipes and lots of knowledge about the city I live in and love! I'm a skilled & enthusiastic designer & engineer with a fascinating "inventors workshop" that's worth a tour in itself! I have developed some wonderful musical instruments (analogue synthesizers) and would absolutely love to share knowledge about this and engineering and design in general (Ok, so a bit dull maybe for some, I know!).
