I grew up skiing in Norway, in my younger years I was a ski jumper and a cross country skier. Then I moved to Chamonix in 1994 and became interested in extreme skiing. I competed on the world tour for a few years, but then I got the chance to film with MSP films. That changed my focus away from competitions. In the last 10 years I have moved my focus more over to Ski touring and travel stories. I am also very involved in developing equipment for my sponsors and love to make the gear we use everyday even better and more functional.
