My name is Michael Hartmann. I’m a Norwegian blogger and photographer based in Oslo.
I’m the founder and face of coverstory.no, an independent blog about pop culture that features music, movies, theatre, and more. I’m updating the blog every weekend.
My writing career began in 2007 when I became a staff writer at Medium, a health and lifestyle magazine. Shortly thereafter, I worked as the editor-in-chief of Pink Planet, a print magazine serving as a cultural guide for the gay community in Oslo. Later, I was a contributor to Gaysir.no, Norway’s biggest gay website.
I have been fortunate to interview some of the top artists in Norway and Sweden, including Christian Ingebrigtsen, Tone Damli, Bertine Zetlitz, Chris Holsten, Lars Vaular, Eric Saade, and Peter Jöback.
Additionally, I have interviewed international known celebrities such as the members of the British/Norwegian pop band A1 (Ben Adams, Mark Read, Christian Ingebrigtsen, and Paul Marazzi), UK fashion advisers Trinny and Susannah, American dancer Danny Tidwell (So You Think You Can Dance, US) and reality star Fredrik Eklund (Million Dollar Listing New York and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles).
I have a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Oslo Metropolitan University. In the four years following graduation, I continued my training at Oslo Accident and Emergency Outpatient Clinic. Since then, I have worked at drug rehabilitation clinics run by The Salvation Army and Oslo University Hospital.
Having an obsession with politics is part of my daily routine. As a result, I blog about healthcare politics, workplace issues, and LGBTQ rights on my own blog, helsehartmann.no. I have also contributed to the Norwegian Journal of Nursing.
Here are some of the celebrities I have interviewed throughout the years:
