I've been working as digital storyteller, photographer, and art educator for several years, mainly on art and health projects on topics like identity and inclusion. I've collaborated with different production companies and institutions. Most of the projects on this site are cross platform digital storytelling projects produced by the Norwegian film production company Flimmer Film.
