My name is Michael Hartmann. I’m a Norwegian writer, photographer, and blogger based in Oslo.
I’m the face, founder, and sole owner of coverstory.no, an independent blog that focuses on pop culture. It features music, movies, theatre, and more, and is updated every weekend with written stories, songs, and videos.
Most of my readers live in Norway, Denmark, the US, and the UK.
It has been a pleasure interviewing some of the biggest artists in Norway and Sweden. These artists include 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).
My writing career started in 2007 as 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. In the years following, I wrote about music for various Norwegian magazines.
I have a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Oslo Metropolitan University. In the five 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.
I own and operate helsehartmann.no, a Norwegian blog about healthcare and workplace issues. I have also contributed to the Norwegian Journal of Nursing.
