About me

I was born and grew up in northern Norway, in the very small town of Brønnøysund. I now live in a little larger town, together with my beautiful Cecilie and our two lovely daughters.

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I began doing computer graphics when our family bought a Commodore 64 in 1985. Some years later we got an Amiga, and later on a PC. By that time I was also doing 3D graphics.

Some of my illustration work caught the attention of a computer games company. And in 1994 I started working professionaly with computer graphics. I spent six years in video games, before I moved into animated movies. That's where I am now.

When I'm not sitting in front of the computer screen, I try to get some sleep.

I don't eat fish.
