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. Several hundred visitors 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.
The Zesty Digest
I am a blogger for The Zesty Digest, the official blog of Sweet Lemon Magazine, an online fashion and lifestyle mag written by and for the "Jane of All Trades." On the blog, you'll find fashion tips, fun DIY projects, and advice on career choices and life's priorities. As I have the opportunity to pick my own topics, you'll find me there writing about everything from classic films to the joy of travel!
The Adventum Blog
I am the Editorial Assistant for Adventum, a biannual digital and print magazine publishing creative nonfiction, essays, and memoir pieces that explore some aspect of personal experience in the outdoors. Our blog is for book reviews, updates from authors we’ve published, interesting news in the outdoor literary world, awesome photos, and more.
