After graduating he was employed at Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners in New York before joining Niels Torp Architects in Oslo.

The office took part in large scale competitions, on its own, and in collaboration with others and had a portfolio spanning from small scale furniture, to complex buildings and urban design.
