About Ayla

Hello! My name is Ayla and I’m a foodie, tea fanatic, and introvert who enjoys living a quiet and simple life.

I have been fascinated with why we humans do what we do since I was young. This motivated me to study psychology and graduate summa cum laude with multiple publications and years of research experience that I have presented at conferences and universities across the United States. My specialty is in romantic relationships, sexism, and social psychology.

I also have experience as a mentor. I feel a great sense of purpose helping others achieve their potential, whether it’s through simplifying their lives, improving their writing, or building healthy relationships. That’s why I created Bloopy Things with my husband, Atle.

About Atle

Hi there! My name is Atle.

I’m a Norwegian fella currently living in the United States with the love of my life, Ayla. Perhaps you ran into her in the section above.

I’m a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). I used to work for a public accounting firm in downtown Minneapolis. That was until Ayla and I decided to simplify our lives and chase experiences rather than paychecks.

Now I focus my time on what I love the most: helping people embrace simple lives like Ayla and I did and spending time with the people dearest to me. I’m also a graphic designer, writer, and photographer.
