About Me
I am an outgoing and creative team player with a passion for economic and strategic analysis.

I have various organisational experience as the head controller in the Student Society, leader of the External Affairs Committee at NHH and as a national board member of the Norwegian Officers Association's student Board. Previously held various positions in the conservative party, regionally.

I am looking for new experiences to develop on the professional, academic and personal level. Strong interest in economic and strategic analysis. I enjoy working in teams and would describe myself as a process oriented person who puts value in good planning.
Experience
  • Worked on Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) field as part of the Fund Intelligence Team of Skagen. Together with my co-intern we worked on systemising Skagens ESG work forward. This involved broad strategic and conceptual thinking, which we narrowed down into concrete deliverables - producing actual changes to how Skagen applies its ESG policy.
  • Preparing, attending and reporting from formal and informal meetings/negotiations in the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In addition, I did some trade-related representation in the UN (UNCTAD) and took part in managing the delegations social media profiles.
  • Worked primarily with the 2019 planning and budgeting process. Among others, this entailed gathering and systemizing data, building an Excel model for costs associated with climate gas emissions and ad-hoc work where needed within the controller's organisation. Also, I spent a couple of weeks auditing the Business Services Center in Budapest.
  • Supported the negotiations team with the systematisation of commercial contracts with the end purpose of creating standards for future license-deals.
  • Tasks included delivery-support, sales and follow-up of my portfolio of Hansa B2B customers.
  • Worked primarily as a squad leader (8 soldiers), but was also exposed leading on the platoon level (40 soldiers) at the Madla boot-camp and in the home guard. I was also responsible for the revision of the training manual on the Brigade level (6000 soldiers).
  • As the first and only ski-instructor in the first year of business, I contributed to establishing a now well-known ski-school at the Fidjeland ski-resort.
