Talks

Computer Games and Coding in School 2015, Bergen
Computer Games and Coding in School 2015, Bergen

I enjoy giving inspiring and entertaining talks within a wide variety of topics, ranging from mathematics and computer science to philosophy and art, where I try to challenge the audience to question their perspectives and think differently. Below is a list of the upcoming talks I am giving, some selected talks from the latter years, and a fairly complete list of all the talks I have given.

Get in touch

I am available to give talks both within Norway and abroad.

"Metaphors, Mathematics, and the Imagination" on TED.com
