Smoke on Water – Countering global threats from peatland loss & degradation
In order to support the Global Peatlands Initiative in its initial work, GRID-Arendal will carry out a peer-reviewed rapid response...
My educational background is multimedia technology and design. Like many others who grew up during the Renaissance of the digital age, I developed a passion for media and digital devices early. My biggest interests are web development and photography, but I also find relief in more traditional activities such as drawing and handcrafting.
After I completed my bachelor's degree back in 2013, I travelled to Bergen and co-founded a company named Thunki. It was a small company with a few motivated like-minded people. Most of my work at Thunki consists of creating web pages, or adding functionality to existing ones. I also worked as a photojournalist during my stay in Bergen, and it was in this field I found my passion for contribution through knowledge. My experiences in Bergen eventually persuaded me to start on my masters in Educational Technology and Media. I discovered Grid-Arendal through my university network, and as of now I am both an employee and a student.
My main responsibilities at Grid-Arendal are management of the digital systems, and continuously contribution to the development of the Grid-Arendal web site.
