Experience & Career

My journey startet in 1999 with a design degree at MI Oslo, Norway. Moving from a long time passion of music, to my new found love of business, technology, design and creativity.

By 2003 I finished my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication. Graduating with a double major in Graphic Design & Digital Design from KvB Sydney (Bond University) with a High Distinction.

Since my Uni days I’ve been fortunate enough to work on a wide range of projects both home and abroad, analog as digital, and on everything from branding and marketing, to product- and business development.

A journey that’s rewarded me with many inspirational friendship and interesting encounters, as well as several awards both nationally and internationally.

Currently working as Principal Designer at Evry Strategic Design Lab.
