From Norway, but living in Scotland, I am a poet, artist, designer, photographer, and long-time dabbler in music.

I play recorders, Native American flutes, and a few notes on the piano, as well as enjoying exploring the timbral possibilities of purely electronic music.

I love playing traditional music from Brittany, Norway and Ireland, as well as my own compositions.
