Language is one of Are’s great passions. He holds regular writing courses and has published the book, Write Better! How to sharpen your language.

For more than 20 years, Are worked as a journalist and editor at Norwegian publications including Finansavisen and Nettavisen. He was also instrumental in establishing the financial website ‘iMarkedet’.

When Are is not at work you can find him at the cabin, or with his head buried deep in a book. Preferably both. He is married to Hilde and has four children, in addition to the shelter dog Alexa.
