Growing up, Andreas got his interest in adventure by following his uncle's expeditions in polar regions and trips all over the world. At the age of 13, he got the chance to explore the arctic wilderness himself, when he became the youngest through history to cross Greenland. As part of a group of eight people, he traversed the ice cap from west to east in a dog supported ski expedition lasting 19 days.
After doing his military duty, he went on to study Industrial Economics and Technology Management (MSc) at NTNU in Trondheim, where he spent his third year as an exchange student with UC Berkeley's Industrial Engineering Department. It was in Trondheim Andreas really got to know Torkjel, who would become a close friend and adventure partner. They spent the last two years in Trondheim as roommates, and hassince then moved on to shared tent in less urban surroundings on numerous occasions.
Andreas is currently working as a trainee on a three year program in Orkla Foods Norge, a job that takes him to remote, domestic locations such as Stranda (Sunnmøre). Living in the midst of some of the most beautiful and spectacular mountains in Norway, has only further fueled his appetite for skiing and mountaineering.
With his interest in photography, he is nothing more than a happy amateur, but takes on the role as photographer whenever traveling or adventouring.
