I believe storytelling is a powerful tool to finding future solutions and forward movement for humanity as a collective, to educate and provoke emotions, and to connect to narratives on a deeper level – that’s what green storytelling is all about.
Photography has always been part of my storyteller journey, but it wasn’t until 2018 that I decided to buy my first proper DSLR camera, Canon EOS 77D. I also have a GoPro Hero 6, which I use for more high-speed, action-filled stories. My main area is within documentary and events, nature, culture, and travel, but I’ve also done portraits, real estate, weddings, and food.
In the summer of 2019, I also completed a documentary filmmaking course at OTOXO productions, in Barcelona Spain, where we completed 3 short films about contemporary social topics during a month period.
I also use software programs such as Adobe Premiere, Photoshop and Lightroom.
I’ve been working with social media marketing since 2014, and I love how these platforms are continuously evolving technologically. This means the stories can get even more creative, and social media allows people to interact with and connect to the stories from different angles.
The journalistic sphere is also changing because of social media, where news and global stories are now created specifically to these media platforms. I’ve already seen how people have creatively made Instagram into a reporting platform, and how this opens up a different dynamic for storytelling journalism.

WRITING & BLOG
Writing for me is a creative and fun craft, where words become small pits of a puzzle. How to express a view and angle of a story in the most compelling way? So, to be a wordsmith is not only about words, but how to creatively put together a narrative that will depict the story in an authentic way.
I’m especially interested in storytelling from a journalistic angle. I’m currently in the process of learning more about constructive journalism methods, and how to create narratives that are in-depth, all-inclusive and that provide a solution to the story.
