Magnus was born on Earth but plans to eventually join the colonies on Mars. He holds a BSc in Renewable Energy Systems from NMBU and UC San Diego. Before his interplanetary move, his goal is to make life on Earth slightly better for someone. Previous to being accepted at NSE he worked as Creative Director at Harper & Brooks and spent six years in the coffee industry in Norway and Australia. An autodidact, the thing he most enjoys is learning new skills (speaking Italian) and useless trivia (The capital of Madagascar is Antananarivo).
