Christine is an active sailor, entrepreneur and ocean conservationist. In 2015 she co-founded Blueye Robotics, to empower ocean exploration by providing small underwater drones which can bring your eyes down to 150m below the surface, controlled from a smartphone. The first prototype was brought by her across the Atlantic sea on a research expedition to map marine litter.
For three years she's been living on a 33ft sailboat from 1972, called Viva Tavaha, in Trondheim before she sailed to Oslo last summer. She knows the value of high quality garment and textiles, and accordring to her northing compares to wool.
"Been using NP's wool underwear since they started, I was excited to hear that they launched the new wool and silk collection without Superwash. Having grown up with a conscious textile designer as my mom, I've known about this problem for quite a while and it's been impossible to find someone who produce clean wool without this plastic coating."

Erlebnisse(n.) - the experiences, positive or negative, that we feel most deeply, and through, which we truly live; not mere experiences, but experiences • . . Diving in 2,5 degrees cold water made my face freeze - this was the best smile I could make😅 However, the fact that we’ve access to this clear, living ocean just minutes from home is soo worth appreciating!🧜🏼♀️ . It’s few big cities where you can find this in immidieate closeness nowadays.. today I’m going to Jakarta where One of the World’s most plastic polluted rivers is! 😱 together with @empowerplastic ♻️ I will investigate how we can mace a positive impact by #empower local cleanups and waste management initiativet! • . . . . #empowerplastic #tavaha #blueye #waste4change

Submerging into the weekend with intention to switch my phone off an just be. . According to research from comScore, the average adult (in US and Europe) spent approximately 2 hours and 51 minutes on their smartphone every single day in 2017. The hours we're projected to spend on social media apps over a lifetime sums up to 5 years and 4 months!!To put that in perspective, it's 36% more time than any of us spend eating and drinking🤯 . A lot of my work, communication with friends and family happens on my phone, practical but unfortunate. I think. . Living on a boat somehow make’s it easier for me to switch of, like if I’m in my own world. Lately I’ve been absorbed by the business and pulsing energy of Oslo - and I love it - but have to make a stronger effort to set some time aside to be offline, out of reach and be present where I am. . Have a present weekend everyone😄
