Professional Drone Pilot

In 2017 I bought my first drone to be able to take exciting photos and video for my web design clients, I didn't know then that I would become a professional drone pilot. But that's how it turned out when, at the beginning of 2022, I was contacted by a startup tech company, and offered a job as a drone pilot. Since that day, I have enjoyed flying drones of all sizes, from those that only weigh a few hundred grams to drones with a diameter of just under 3 meters.

So yes, my job is simply to travel the world and play with toys with insane price tags.

I am a certified pilot in classes A1/A2/A3 and have extensive experience with operations in extremely demanding conditions.

When I'm not out and about, I also offer my pilot expertise as a freelancer in photography and video.

Freelance Web Designer

Before I started traveling the world flying drones, I ran my own company for several years where I helped both small and large companies develop their perfect website, and to get noticed online.
But after a while, combining this with my daily job at a startup, it eventually became difficult to find time, so in early 2022, I ended my company Webstr.

But this does not mean that I have stopped developing websites. But to make things a little easier, I now instead offer my services as a freelancer, that way I have some freedom to take on assignments if I have free capacity, without having to run a company.

I developed my first website for a client in 2013, and to date have developed over 50+ websites for everything from sole traders to large companies .

Hobby Photographer

I've always had an interest in photography, and pretty much always have at least one camera with me when I travel so that I can snap all the wonderful things our world has to show.

My favorite subjects are usually nature and animals, but if I see something else interesting, the camera is not far away.

I regularly share my photos on my instagram and in my picfair gallery.

Youtuber

I love web design and I love helping people. It is therefore only natural that I share my experience and knowledge with others. On my youtube channel, I therefore share videos about web design and practical tools that make it easier to succeed online.

A bit of random trivia

  • My photographs have been shown in galleries both in Johannesburg, Melbourne, Chicago, Barcelona, Berlin, Athens, Minneapolis and New York
  • I taught myself to ride when I was 4 years old on a bike which was way too big
  • For several years I was known as HobbyKokken Tor and was one of Norway's most read food bloggers
  • I probably have more gadgets in the house than screws in the wall
  • I have a house full of Lego sets with themes from movies and TV
  • Get in touch

    I know how it is, sometimes an email just feels like a bit of overkill, so if you don't feel like it, I totally understand. But how about sending me a little message on social media.
