Published Articles

In addition to blogging at Outside Oslo, I am the food editor for The Norwegian American and am a nationally-published writer, photographer, and recipe developer. My recipes and articles on topics ranging from Nordic cuisine to parenting have appeared in a number of print and online publications in North America and Norway, including The Oregonian, Costco Connection, Pregnancy & Newborn, ParentMap, and Our Amazing Norway. If you’re interested in hiring me for a writing project, contact me at outsideoslo (at) yahoo (dot) com.
