In the beginning of this year I wrote that 2014 would be a year for answers. It was. It has not been a parade of happy times. I have not been dressed by little birds in the mornings and I still curse people on the subway on a daily basis. You know, the usual ups and downs. But I have…

Sports and cars. That would be my two biggest blind spots. When people talk about the hockey game last night or some new car on the market, my eyes go blank and my mind wander off to some place more interesting. Like what to eat for dinner. And I hate cooking. But throw in a camera in the mix, and it…

October 4 was not a day like any other. It was the day when Perrine and Stefan got married. And I had the privilege of documenting it all with my camera. Photographing a wedding is scary. The stakes are higher than your average photography gig. If your camera breaks, your memory card fails or you screw up in any other way, there…

Sime. A conference by, and with, a bunch of fun and crazy people. I used to be part of the team, and as we former Sime people joke about, once you are in, you are never really getting out. Every year I am surprised by how much I still enjoy it. So, here is my brief summary of Sime 2014. Everyone talked…

One of the best parts about my job is that I get to go to things like The Conference. The Conference is a conference that is not that easily described. I would say it is mainly about media and communication, but often with a different perspective. With speakers from all over the world, with a wide range of backgrounds and a high standard of…

A few times a year me and my friends take turns in hosting brunch for each other. We all bring something to the table, one makes magical scones, another one the best scrambled eggs in the world and the one who is somewhat disabled in the kitchen (me) makes american pancakes from a finished mix. Then we sit down and talk about…

Scotland, you pretty thing you. It can go months when I do not think about you at all, but then it just hits me how much I miss you. The nature. The history. The people. There is just something about you that keeps me coming back.

In Costa Rica I tried surfing for the first time. It was one of those things where you are sure you will not make it out of there alive, but at the same time you are having too much fun to stop. A few months later, end of August, I went to Portugal. One week at Baleal Surf Camp and…

FINALLY. Ever since This American Life, one of my favorite podcasts, started teasing us about their new show in July I have been waiting not so patiently by my podcast app. I mean, come on, how long does a girl have to wait to get her new audio fix? Last Thursday the first two episodes was released and, of course, it was worth…

So this guy, Felix Starck, decided to go traveling the world. By bike. A year and 22 countries later he compiled a documentary about the journey. If the short excerpt above does not trigger your wanderlust, you can also read his advice for people who dream about doing something similar, but are afraid to take the step. For the first time…

Ever heard of The Compulsive Draft Disorder?* I believe it’s somewhat common for consultants who spend their days writing e-mails, offers and other documents. When you get home after a day with the most soul-killing of programs (yes, Microsoft Office, I am talking about you), you might discover that you have grown so used to twist your words for clients that you are…

New York. One of those places you have to see, and before you even arrive you know you’re going to love it. Expectations was high when I got on the plane a few weeks ago and headed to JFK. And I was not disappointed. I will not bore you with some kind of travel guide. Other people has already done it…
