I was born and raised in Norway, in several villages and small towns. In 2005 I moved to New Zealand, where I completed a Master in Tourism at Victoria University in Wellington. My heart still belongs to New Zealand, but my family and connections in Europe led me to take a job that I was offered in Vienna in 2010. So, now I'm Viennese, for as long as my PhD (also in Tourism) will take me. After that I don't know where I'll go. My passions in life are music, photography, plants (I'm getting better at understanding them!), fluffy things and food. And using my brain. I like that too.
