I am a freelancer located in Norway, I own and run northern-studios.com. I specialise in matte-work and tutorials, for print and web. I do anything from book-covers and 3D walkthroughs, to modeling and texturing, and you can see samples of my work at i.e my own site or at futurenet's 3D World site and at some commercial brokerages.
I also work as a project manager in disciplines varying from game-development to telco/SWE-work.
