Started in the business in 1998. At Sosialurin - a Faroese newspaper.

From april 2000 until december 2001 I was working as a journalist for Faroese Telecom at www.portal.fo.

Since then I have been working for Faroese newspapers Fregnir (stopped), Vinnuvitan (business paper) and Dimmalætting, where I have been working since october 2006. Last september the paper closed.

I left Dimmalætting before that, in july 2013, to become editor in chief at www.portal.fo, the biggest website in the Faroe Islands. I held this job for a year.

In 2014 we restarted the oldest newspaper Dimmalætting, that went bankrupt in september 2013. The paper is now a weekly published every friday and I am the managing director of the company. For the first 14 months I as well was the editor in chief.
