I have been working in the field of communications since 1999, specialising in outreach through publications, online media, multimedia and capacity building. I have also managed projects, proposals, fundraising, budgets and supervised outsourcing.
When I started at GRID-Arendal over 15 years ago I worked as a web/graphic designer and ever since I have been fortunate enough to be encouraged by GRID-Arendal to expand my position. I have been given the opportunity to work both as part of a team, as well as alone, from concept to final realisation. I have been fortunate enough in my current position to use the full extent of my design background to develop off-line and online projects as well as supporting the existing graphic design department from concept work to negotiating with printers. Perhaps the most challenging (and ultimately, the most rewarding) aspect of my current position is the diverse range of language and cultural backgrounds I have encountered.
My main interests include anything related to design of graphical and digital media. And projects related to training with a special focus on youth activities.
I am currently enjoying being actively involved in marine litter related activities at GRID-Arendal.
