Our company and partners
What’s in a name? The Oceanwatcher name comes from the view on the island of Karmøy on the west-coast of Norway that was the home of the first king of the country. Many suggests the passage past the island is also the origin of the name Norway (Norge in Norwegian) – “The way north”. An ever-changing weather and a fantastic nature made it easy to choose Oceanwatcher as a nickname in the early days of the web, and now it is part of the company name.

Growing up on a small farm on the coast of Norway gave him an appreciation for the power and beauty in nature. And with 20 years experience in broadcast tv, video and film production, he has a solid background to tackle a wide range of challenges. He considers everything he does today as one or another form of communication, and that it has become even clearer during the last years after moving from Norway to Brazil. In addition to the media work, he also teaches photography, video production and trains video editors in how to use Avid MediaComposer.
