Fierce, forthright and friendly. I make the most of most things.

I lead, collaborate and build on the intersection of business, change and learning.

I am working as Head of Collaborator Network at Hyper Island, where I am also a proud part owner.

As founding Program Director I led the inaugural iteration of 30 Weeks in New York City, the education-meets-incubation program for design founders created by Hyper Island, Google and the leading New York design schools.

Before that I led the development of Hyper Island's Ecommerce Business program, Digital Data Strategist program and first ever online offerings; The Digital Marketing Online Course and Leading Teams in the Digital Age.

I am also a passionate co-founder of SKAP, a creative folk high school on the southern tip of Norway.

Previously I has led teams and built things across education, digital, fashion, photography and advertising in London, Amsterdam, Stockholm and New York.
