"I grew up in a super small town called Stryn in the fjords of Norway. With a population of 5,000, it means there are limitations to what you can do and achieve. It was an amazing place to grow up in, but I always had this feeling that I didn’t fit in. After finding the drums I started dreaming about moving to Los Angeles to pursue it. It felt so right and I couldn’t wait to finish high school so I could finally go. I love Norway, but my gut was telling me to go to Los Angeles, so I applied to Musicians Institute in Hollywood, got accepted and flew across the pond at the age of 20.
From there, I went on to tour with multiple several signed artists all over the world, from the United States to Asia, and Europe to Australia. After gathering a lot of experience performing with different artists, I started expanding my expertise to include musical directing and music production."
I look forward to working with you!
