My background history
This is the page where I talk about some of my wanderings through life.
Detailed CV (In Norwegian)
I grew up with playing games on a Intellivision, Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga and later on a Mac and a PC. Something I do remember from early on was the Paint program I liked a lot.
Hennepin Technical College
We lived in Minneapolis and I began at a technical college with a focus on design and web. I took a course in Adobe Photoshop and it reminded me of Paint. I was happy! This was fun and exiting! I also had a lot of fun with Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver. It required more work with programming and creating flow charts. After two years I was finished at Hennepin Tech and received a Diploma.
I began at Augsburg College and fokuset on Art (design, web, etc) and Art History. There were a lot of really interesting classes and among them my web design knowledge grew. I also took two courses in darkroom photography. The part of seeing an image grow onto the white sheet of papir was just like magic.
I took multiple English classes writing and literature. Web design. As well as very many other kinds of classes. I graduated with an Bachlor in Arts at the end of 2002. In 2003 I left for Los Angeles to become a model/actor/etc.
