Like many other precision drivers, I honed my skills in motorsport. I started racing go-karts back in 1989, then moved on to single seaters in 1993 and saloon cars in 1997. My last full season of racing was in 1998. I then went on to do a couple of rallies for fun, before getting into drifting in 2003. Over the years I have competed in racing, rallying and drifting, and have won races at both national and international level in every category. In 2004 I won the first ever D1 drift event in Europe, and in 2006 I co-founded the Norwegian drifting series, and worked behind the scenes to make sure drifting was acknowledged as a sport by the Norwegian Autosport Federation.
After a few years of not driving myself, I got frustrated by the direction drifting was headed and decided to build a car that would be the polar opposite of everything else out there. Rather than spending huge amounts of money building a 1000hp monster, I went in the opposite direction, choosing a 1977 Toyota Cressida as my weapon of choice. With only 211whp I took on the big boys, and allthough I do not compete, I feel like I won. The car quickly became famous all over the world, and as I am writing this, my YouTube videos have been watched 2,615,055 times. The car even landed me a small role in the Norwegian feature film "Børning" in 2014.
And that brings us to how I got into the movie business...
My first job as a precision driver was back in 2008. I was contacted by an old friend who is a prop master, asking if I could help out with some driving scenes for a feature film for a childrens movie. Little did I know at the time that what they wanted was a proper car chase with crashing and a rollover in the middle of Oslo. It was a challenge, but in the end, we had a great time and the scene turned out pretty cool. I knew then that this was something I could see myself doing. However, car chases in Norwegian film and television are few and far apart, so for a while I mostly did simple stuff for commercials and tv shows, such as Lillyhammer.
In 2013, things changed drastically. I was hired as one of two main drivers for the feature film, Børning, a classic "cannonball"-style movie about a race from Oslo to North Cape. The production was intense and we did some rather amazing stuff that has never before been done on film. Proper high speed action and drifting in 600+ bhp cars on twisty and narrow mountain roads. The film had great success in the Norwegian box office and this is how I met the guys at MovieBird. Having worked with them for Børning, they offered me to step in as a driver on their ML55 AMG Russian Arm. Things worked out great, and since then I've been travelling all over Europe, filming commercials, music videos, TV shows and feature films.
