I have been working as an all round designer for about 5 years
at Yran & Storbraaten Architects in Norway who has been developing cruise
ships, yachts and land based architecture since 1985.
I have since Januray 2013 been a part of the yacht design team at Omega-Architects in The Netherlands gaining additional experience in design & development for the dutch superyacht industry.
I have experience in how a big design team works, both with
regards to technical operation as well as social interaction.
My main responsibility has been design & concept development for
marketing purposes and client presentations.
I have a great passion for transportation related products & systems and
are activly pursuing a career in this industry. I am also interested in
other design fields like architecture, graphic and industrial design.
I am a trustwortrhy and reliable assosciate who understand what it takes to
be involved in big and challenging projects who play out under strict budget
limitations and deadlines.
I would consider myself to be a social person with a sense of humor as
well as a perfectionist when it comes to delivering high quality designwork.
I am familiar with working in multicultural teams and speak and write fluent
I am always striving to aquire the best solution to a design problem
through self critical and analytical discussions with my collaborators.
I first and foremost believe that good design comes to life through
productive and focused teamwork in a multidisciplinary environment.
