Hi, Im a 43
year old native Norwegian, living in Oslo.

I have more than 20 years of experience as a journalist. During those years Ive
worked for radio, online and print. I mainly covered areas like finance,
business and technology, but also other news-topics.

Now I work full time as a freelance journalist and translator.

As a journalist I write original texts and have good skills in digital research
on requested topics. I write both long and short articles, depending on the customers
needs. I cover several fields, with specific interest in European politics and

I have considerable experience in translating articles from English, Swedish
and Danish to Norwegian and Im used to work on short deadlines. I take pride in
my work and don’t use translating tools like Google Translate, as I don’t find
them to be accurate. Instead I use my experience and knowledge of language.

Besides being native Norwegian, Im fluent in Swedish, English and Danish.

I look forward to working together. If you have any further questions, don’t
hesitate to contact me.
