writer. lover. climber.
I specialize in personal essays, travel writing, technical writing, book reviews, and other works of creative non-fiction.
You'll find me with pen in hand in cafés, parks, museums, and on trains. I'll write anywhere! However, my current studio is the second bedroom of my attic flat in Oslo.
To kindle a kinship with my readers, to answer their questions (all of which are also my own). Writing helps me to organize my thoughts and to make sense of things.
Writers spring from a common soil, enriched by all the beautiful, precise, and rousing writing that has come before and that continues to grow around them.
The Girl Behind the Red Door
My personal blog is equal parts Travelogue, Expat Journal, and
Creative Outlet. More than a thousand people come across my blog each month.
Some are curious about expat life, others look for
trip reports on the hikes we take in the Oslomarka and climbs we have
made in Yosemite. I'm grateful that so many stick around to read my
musings. No matter where I live or what phase of life I eventually
enter into, I know I will always be The Girl Behind the Red Door.
