I grew up in Norway and moved to the US for College and adventure when I was 20. I loved it so much that I decided to stay for a while(14 years now). I still keep in touch with my friends and family back home as often as I can. My favorite part about traveling is the people I meet - a close second is to experience the food scene of wherever I'm going. I travel a lot for work as a Software Developer, mostly in the US. My favorite way to explore a new place is either by foot or bike. I love the ocean and the mountains. I love being connected to nature and the bustle of a big city. I love to run and to fly(mostly paragliding). I love to cook and to eat out. I don't know that I have a life motto, but if I was going to pick one I would say I try to "keep an open heart" and remember that life is short. For me, life is about the connections I make and the experiences I have.
