I was born in Norway. I have a bachelor degree (and an aborted master thesis) from the University of Tromsoe. In my studies in anthropology i focussed on the development of demand structures and market channels in the emerging markets of post-communist Eastern Europe.
Since May 2000 i have been living in Bulgaria. Here i set up a business that produces and sells jewellery. In addition to my managerial tasks, I have been doing the marketing and brand management of the company. I recently sold my shares in the business, and I would now like to try my hand at freelance writing, both translations and copywriting. In my spare time I am an avid duplicate bridge player.
