Born and raised in Paris, the Norwegian director was introduced to filmmaking when a friend gave him a Bolex 16mm film camera, encouraging him to film his friends who were professional skiers, snowboarders and explorers. Jumping at the chance to pursue something different, Henrik spent several years adventuring around the globe in the back of vans and climbing 14,000 foot snowy peaks in the Swiss Alps. 

Since then, Henrik has directed films for Reebok, Gore-Tex, Netcom and Cisco, exploring emotional drive and human connection. His work is best described as intuitive and personal, always looking for immersive experiences with strong human characters, while blending narrative and documentary filmmaking.
