About

I am a senior lecturer at the Journalism program at Oslo University College in Oslo, Norway. I’m writing a PhD-dissertation on feature journalism in online newspapers, which I hope to submit before the end of 2009.

I have a background as a journalist, both as a news reporter and a feature writer. I have worked for several Norwegian newspapers, including Agderposten, VG and Dagbladet. I have also published a a text book on reportage journalism and a journalistic, literary documentary called “The residents” (“Beboerne”) on life and death in a Norwegian nursing home. Together with the publishing house Spartacus I’m planning future documentaries in the genre of literary journalism.

I have a wife and two kids and live on Nesodden – a peninsula  just outside of Oslo.
