About Me

The formal stuff.

I was born and raised in Norway, and very early on I discovered my love for knowledge and understanding, which lead to what I consider to be a pretty amazing life.

I started university at the age of 20 after serving in the Norwegian air force, and during the following six years I ended up with three degrees: A bachelor in social sciences, a teaching degree in psychology, and a masters degree in education with a thesis on teaching social skills.

My love for learning, exploring and understanding lead me to have thousands of conversations with people all over the world.

In my mid 20s these conversations started turning into coaching sessions, seminars, workshops and trainings. I launched my own coaching practice in 2009, and since then I’ve become an international speaker who has worked with thousands of people on three different continents.

I’m also a multiple times published author, I’ve had my own radio segment on Norway’s biggest radio channel and a column in our largest online newspaper. I’ve qualified as a Mensa member, and I’ve had over 100 appearances in national media, covering both TV, radio, newspapers and magazines.

Moving to the US.

A few years ago I did that silly thing that people do: I fell in love.

It just so happened that the woman I fell in love with lived on the other side of the planet, in Las Vegas. Luckily for me, travel has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager, and having traveled the world – moving to the other side of it seemed like a great idea.

So I relocated to Las Vegas, married my lovely Nia, and share a wonderful home with her, our two cats and my two fish tanks.

On a day to day basis I work with my 1-on-1 clients from my home office with a view of The Stratosphere and Circus Circus hotel and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. And whenever I get the chance I travel all over the world to work with companies or speak at various events.
