From Scandinavia to the World

I'm David Nikel, a British writer living and working in Scandinavia.

I write about travel, technology & business from around the region and work with Nordic companies to improve their English language communications.

Let's talk.

International Mindset

Scandinavia is my "beat", but I work with clients all over the world, from Qatar to the USA.

I work regularly with non-native English speakers and understand many of the cultural differences in global business.

As a native Brit, I write in British English but will happily switch to American English when required.

A Relevant Background

Unlike many freelance journalists, I've actually worked in industry: mainly project management within the ICT, engineering, energy and automotive fields.

I've written about topics as diverse as scrubbers (shipping), Monte Carlo algorithms (probability-based software) and rock drilling (mining), and plenty about the northern lights, of course!

I understand the language of innovation & industry.

A True Traveller

As a frequent traveller around the region, I produce destination features, local news articles and travel features for a variety of global publications.

You'll see my work in the Telegraph, the publications of Norwegian Air, airBaltic and Finnair, and on my own Life in Norway website.
