Frederik joined Basecamp Explorer as head of digital in August 2018. Frederik has a background in journalism, and was chief editor at visitnorway.com for ten years before he came to Basecamp.
Frederik is from Oslo, has lived in the US and the UK, and has had travel as a passion as long as he can remember.
Frederik strongly believes in travel as one of the most important things humans do, as a peace keeping activity. One of many favorite quotes:
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad.
Frederik is a relative of Roald Amundsen, and a proud member of the Basecamp family.
