Mo i Rana, a town in Northern Norway.
I am the guitarist and singer of a power metal band called
Gaia Epicus. I am a musician and i also work as a music teacher.
started to play drums long before I picked up a guitar for
the first time. My drum inspiration was Ian Haugland (Europe)
and Diesel Dahl (TnT). I did form a band called Thunder where
I played the drums for 2-3 years. Then some years passed
without any playing until December 1991. Then I formed
a band which is now called Gaia Epicus. Back then I was gonna
play the drums but since the guitar player didn't show any
interest I picked up the guitar and started to play, and still
how to play the guitar by teaching me how to play
almost every Metallica song, and also Megadeth songs.
So my 2 guitar hero's/teachers are Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)
and James Hetfield (Metallica).
interests are as you may have guessed music but I also
like to make webpages and do other designs such as posters,
cd covers and so on. I also watch alot of movies as you can see
below on this page where some of my favourite movies are listed.

videos and also a full lenght Norwegian horror movie.
