I was born and raised in Halden, a small townsoutheast in Norway, and attended veterinary college in West Berlin (Freie Universitat Berlin) and Oslo (Norges Veterinærhøgskole). After graduation, I worked in several Animal hospitals before going back to college to do my Ph.D in large animal internal medicine. I did pass the national board certified specialist exam (CertES) and have been an MRCVS (UK) for some years. I spend my days between practice, teaching, legal advice,and being a racetrack vet in Oslo. Privately I am married to Tina and we have four kids.
