My name is Nils Petter Nordskar - Americans call me Nils (of course). I am a father of two girls (21 and 25) and still married to their mother Hilde who is a stage instructor at the national opera here in Oslo.
I am a typical entrepreneur - I have started two advertising agencies and an internet consultancy in Norway. My first ad agency was bought by the Leo Burnett Company in Chicago - earnout period ending in 1994. After that - a web company (New Media Science) started already in 1995 became quite successful and noted on the stock exchange in Stockholm. It went all the way down during (website hidden) crash, but still exists - now under the name Bouvet. Virtual Garden became my next agency - changing the name to Screenplay after a while. Still up and running. I am now working as a freelance copywriter and creative consultant within advertising, online and offline.
Right now, the spring/summer of 2012, I must finish my book on creativity, which is why I plan a trip to Stanford/Palo Alto and Innovation House there, run by Innovation Norway.
I am born in 52 - most people don't believe that...: -))
I don't smoke, I do drink both beer and wine and I am very flexible and absolutely not a complainer. I get along well with most people. Speak American/English fluently - maybe beacause I have been to the States som many times. I even went to St.Olaf College in Minnesota a long time ago.
What more is there to tell? Check me out on LinkedIn - some of this may be repeated there...
