What most people don’t know about you? That I re­ally don’t like fly­ing, which is kind of a hand­i­cap with the travel dis­tance be­tween my of­fices.

The wildest/weird­est thing you have done? I’m sorry; I will and can­not ever tell.

What is your big­gest achieve­ment so far? Easy ques­tion; to be a dad.

When was the first time you came to Thai­land? I came to Thai­land the first time in the early spring of 1996. Its more than 17 years ago, and I was close to 30 years old. This is very strange since I’m just 37 now.

What do you like most and least about liv­ing in Thai­land? I en­joy the food, life­style and friend­li­ness, and I have also got many great friends here, both ex­pats and res­i­dents.

I re­ally don’t like jet lag, traf­fic jams and tem­per­a­tures above 30.

Where is your favourite weekend get­away in Thai­land? I must an­swer Baan Vis­caya in Nak­lua. It’s my wife’s fam­ily get­away; an Nor­we­gian oa­sis on Wonga­mat Beach north of Pat­taya.

If you be­come Bangkok Mayor for one day, what will be the first thing you do? Ex­cept from the ob­vi­ous, I would start full ex­pan­sion of BTS and MRT, and re­duce num­ber of Taxis.

Your favourite restau­rant(s) in Bangkok? Too hard to de­cide, and too many to men­tion. It prob­a­bly should have been fewer.

The last book you’ve read? The last book I read was The Snow­man by Jo Nesbø

Where do you live in 10 years? I will live in my boat in Nor­way in the sum­mer and some­where warmer in the win­ter. ;-)
