I was educated Art director in 1978 at Westerdals School of Advertising, and worked as AD for 15 years in different agencies, such as Benton & Bowles and Scaneco, Young & Rubicam, Oslo, with international and national clients.
I have, since 1987, done editorial design on books on psychology, drug addiction therapy, poetry and art publications for exhibitions on Northern Environment Identity in Norway, Canada, Russia, Finland, Greenland, Iceland.
In 1999 I started, as a tutor in Art direction, at Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology.
In 2009 I was trained in pedagogic for collage teachers at Oslo and Akershus University Collage of applied Sciences.
Since then I have been working full time as an associate professor at Westerdals, mostly with classes in editorial communication, editorial design, visual communication and semiotics.
I believe good communication is about telling stories, either you draw them, write or use film as your media.
