Educator, photographer, visual artist born and raised in Kristiansand, Norway. Spent many years studying and working in San Francisco, and for the past ten years worked as a teacher in media related subjects.
Main photographic focus for the past ten years have been documenting the cultural events in my region. Expanding on this, projects in North Korea has been a driving force, and have lead to many unique opportunities.
I am part of Traavik.info’s communications department.
