When did you arrive in Norway?

This time since September, but I studied art in Hønefoss for a year in 2003 at a Ringerike Folkehøgskole. I plan on being here for at least two more years.

What do you like best here?

I like my lifestyle! I have a great job, I feel relaxed, I get holidays and the opportunity to travel, I eat healthy and excersize more and I feel like I spend more time pursuing my creative interests and hobbies here than I did back home. I have been really lucky to get my dream job, a lovely house and a couple new friends. I am also living, for the first time in my life, with family around and enjoy dinners with my cousins and aunts here in Oslo. Also, Torsk this time of year is not to be beat!

Do you have a favourite place to meet up for a drink?

Not necessarily a favorite. Cafe Laundromat is near my house and they have both delicious burgers and and fabulous list of beers. Oslo Mekaniske Verksted in Grønland is also a good place to meet people for a drink. I am in the process of discovering new places.


I moved to Oslo in September from Portland, Oregon, USA. I am a Norwegian-American, I was born here in Oslo, but have been in Oregon my whole life. I am an English teacher here and really want to meet some more people!
