Consultancy and background

On request I do various assignments on tourism, public speaking, food business, and journalism.

Food business:
Having studied gastronomy for three years in Italy, and working full-time in the same field in Norway for another three years, I have acquired both experience and results in the food sector. As a food consultant I have worked hands-on within the fields of processing, distribution, logistics, e-commerce, retail, management and business development.
Clients and/or employers include: Matkollektivet, Reindyrka AS, Kompetansenavet Vest, Fiskfråfjorden SA, Håjen AS, Folkelig AS and Bondens Marked.

The past years I have worked and/or published for television, newspapers and magazines on the topics of politics, food and sports. Assignments have been done both in Norway and abroad.
Clients/employers and/or publications include: TV2, Bergens Tidende, Dagsavisen, Gudbrandsdølen Dagningen, Romsdals Budstikke, Tun Media, and Matmerk.

On request I help to organize travels to Italy, Russia and Norway – nations that I have obtained knowledge about culture, history and food. Theme for travel is customized according to request, but my prime focus is the experience of genuine food, culture, traditions and humans. A combination of rural and urban areas gives the most full experience.
