I was born in 1963 in a small town called Gjøvik in Norway.  This town co-hosted the winter Olympics together with Lillehamer and Hamar in 1994.  I graduated from the university of Oslo with a b.sc. in computer science in 1989, and I  worked for Ericsson between 1990 and 2001.  My tasks at Ericsson included 
  • Firmware, UNIX and Windows programming in Asembly, C and C++ 
  • Product management 
  • Project management 
  • Cource development 
  • WEB responsible for my department and our products 
  • People management 
Since 1995, I have devoted all my spare time to 3D modelling, animation and
visual effects.  My projects have mainly been private, but I have also done some
3D for Ericsson including  
  • Product visualisation 
  • Graphics for presentations 
  • Front covers for binders and manuals 
In 1999 I also did a couple of 3D matte paintings for a Norwegian movie called
'Fomlesen i Kattepine' (Fumblebody in a Cat-astrophic Jam) together with
Øyvind Bråss and Karl-Erik Ruud.  

I now work as a technical coordinator at AnimagicNet in Oslo.  We are currently producing a feature length computer animated movie called 'Free Jimmy'.  My tasks include

  • Workstations and network 
  • Special Effects
  • Technical aspects of Maya and other tools
  • Rendering using Renderman
  • Compositing
