User Bio

I am a writer-director working both in London and in my native Norway.

My latest short, My Friend Kills Time, premiered in competition at South By Southwest in 2012. It is now available online at NOWNESS.

This was preceded by the medium length film SCRATCH, a story set in the East-London art scene, starring Viktoria Winge and Luke Treadaway. SCRATCH received the Best Fiction Award at The Aubagne Film Festival in France.

Vanilla Song, one of my earlier shorts, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, Cinéfondation.

I have an MA in Fiction Direction from the National Film and Television School in the UK. I've also attended Jeanne Moreau's screenwriting workshop in Angers, France and The Berlin Talent Campus.

As a commercial director, highlights include "Hunger" for Norwegian clothing brand St. Hallvard and "Be There" for Scandinavian Airlines.

I'm currently writing my first feature film, the dark coming-of-age story ANNA X.
