Social anthropologist, intersectional feminist writer, minority rights advocate

Welcome to my homepage!

I am an openly transgender, neurodivergent, lesbian woman living in Oslo, Norway.


By training I am a social anthropologist, holding a PhD in anthropology from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, completed in 2020 under the supervision of Professor Francis B. Nyamnjoh. I also hold an MPhil in social anthropology (2016) and a BA in interdisciplinary development studies (2013), both from the University of Oslo. My main field of interest within anthropology is ethnic and racial relations, and especially the concept of Whiteness. I have done ethnographic fieldwork in Fiji, Norway, Romania, and South Africa.

In addition to my academic education, I am also a professionally certified scuba diver (PADI Divemaster) with a current total of 218 logged dives in 10 different countries.

I have been active in queer/trans communities and related scenes for a number of years and in various capacities, including as a national board member of the Norwegian Patient Organisation for Gender Incongruence (POGI / PKI) and a member of the Queer and Intersectional Committees of Neurodiversity Norway, and I have participated in reference groups for several projects related to LGBTQ+ topics. Since January 2021 I have been working full-time as an advisor for FRI, the Norwegian Organisation for Sexual and Gender Diversity.


Writing is a passion of mine, and I have a long list of publications to my name. From 2020 to 2022, I was a regular contributor and intermittent editor at the feminist blog collective Maddam. In 2022, I became the first openly transgender woman in Norway to publish a collection of poetry, En balansert debatt.

I am a proponent of intersectional and trans-inclusive feminism, and a strong supporter of sex positivity and body positivity. Anti-racism is very important to me, and the cause of Norway's national minorities is particularly close to my heart. I proudly identify as Norwegian, Romani, and Forest Finn. I am a co-founder of the Forest Finn youth organisation Unge skogfinner i Norge / Norjan metsäsuomalaisnuoret, and I host a Norwegian-language podcast on Forest Finn topics, Skogfinske samtaler, available on Spotify.
