More about me



Trondheim, Norway

Where have I been?

Originally from Trondheim, Norway, I arrived in the UK to study in 2001. I graduated BA (Hons) Visual Communication from UCA while winning the Guardian Student Media Award for design in 2004. I have since held positions as Senior Web Designer and as Director of Product for content management and eCommerce software. My experience is primarily in design and product development, branding and promotional marketing, customer and partner relations, business development, management at board level, and government relations related to funding.

Where have I been?

After ten years of linear career development, studying MA Innovation Management is a great opportunity for me to inject a bit of disruption while gaining wider perspectives and deeper insights. In collaboration with fellow students from a wide range of international, professional and academic backgrounds, the course allows me to experiment and learn by solving challenges in areas previously beyond my professional and academic comfort zones.

Where am I going?

The course structure allows me to both study and work, letting me keep up to date in my professional field while learning. Being over two years it also gives me loads of time to consider what comes next. On completing the course, I will seek out opportunities to do work that make a real positive difference.
