Bjørn grew up in Stavanger, located on Norway’s south-west coast. Having always enjoyed the sea, he spent the summers growing up sailing and camping in the nearby Fjords. At the age of 16 Bjørn moved to the US for a year for a High School Exchange Programme. In many ways this experience is the reason he decided to pursue a career in the travel industry. While studying Tourism Management in Oslo, Bjørn started working as a flight attendant – a job that would take him to all corners of the world.
In 2014 Bjørn’s passion for travel brought him to Melbourne where he completed a Master of International Business before he started to work for 50 Degrees North.
