Since 2008, I have been working as a photographer for larp (live action roleplaying) community in Oslo in my spare time. The photos from the larp "Till death do us apart" (played in Palestine in the summer of 2012) was featured in Helsinki Sanomat - the major daily newspaper in Finland.

I read and draw comics in between working as a designer. Here is my weekly webcomic about funny, absurd and beautiful moments in my daily life.
