I’m Øivind, a father, a husband, a writer and a passionate photographer, an indefatigable hiker, a music lover.
I’m a former language teacher and an adult education manager, now a full time writer, based in Bergen, Norway.
I love listening to the voices of others and those coming from inside myself, becoming ideas and trying to make something meaningful out of it through verbal sounds, words and sentences.
Writing has become my passion number one now that I am no longer in a paid full time job and can concentrate on my favorite activities.
I take a lot of photos with my Canon 5 D EOS Mark III. I love hiking, and I take a lot of photos when I am walking in the landscapes of my country. I also love taking pictures of people, and I want to make city photography one of my next fields of focus.

I write in English and Norwegian, sometimes also in French. I publish some of my writings in my own publication Insight (Norwegian: Innsikt). Other pieces and photos I publish with other magazines on Medium. You can find my writings on Medium here: https://medium.com/innsikt/read-more-90098f044655

If you are interested in publishing your writings with Insight, or if you have any other messages for me, please just let me know by e-mail [email protected].

When I reach $500 per month, I’ll start a special podcast series where I interview 1 patron every month.
