He made up the 12th Galaxy universe in which he invented a few stories. He also wrote a short story called “Chess in space” at this time. His first song, “One way love”, was written in 1984. Lars also started making a local “newspaper” with some friends, but ended up writing it alone after a few editions. These he would sell to friends and neighbours walking door to door. In 9th grade Lars took journalism and coedited the school newspaper. As an adult, Lars has worked at four different local radio-stations, Radio Fana, Radio Arna, Radio KrF (Christian People’s Party) and Frie Evangeliske Forsamlings radio (Free Evangelical Church’s radio). It was on the radio he aquired the nickname “The Dinosuarman” – when he was speaking on the subject of dinosaurs in the Bibel.

He has worked in 3 children’s nurseries, at a daycenter for people with learning disabilities, and with some young mentally challenged people in their own protected homes. Today, he’s working at a psychiatric hospital in Bergen, Norway, where he was employed in 2011. He took some furthered education, SEPREP, from 2018 – 2020, with emphasis on patients with drug related problems as well as psychosis.

In 2003, Lars was ordained as a minister in Nuneaton, England and started up Kingsmead Independent Baptist Chuch 23rd of  September the same year. He ministered there to 2005 when he handed the work over to Rev. Damian Pickett. Lars returned to Norway in 2006 where he started up Sunday school, Bible studies and family meetings. This ended in 3013 because of health reasons.
