Svenska / English
I was born 1974 and raised in a little village outside the town Östersund in northern Sweden, where my family have had a house and some land since the 1700-century.
That I became a writer and filmmaker isn't that strange. I have always been interested in storytelling and decided to be an author when I was eleven years old. And I succeded! Two of my novels have been published by a small publishing company to my great pride. A Swedish newspaper made a two page feature about me and right now I'm writing my next novel.
My profession grew from this urge to tell stories. Writing and filmmaking – to communicate a message – has been my focus all my life. I've been working as a film director, done commersials and feature films, and right now I am a copywriter working with text for web and social media at The Municipality of Linköping in Sweden.
In my spare time I play in the band Expanding Chaos that, according to well meaning friends, play "a bit strange" music. I love books and like to read both fiction and fact, I'm interested in psychology, music, movies, games, exploring the world, learning new stuff and write, write, write!
Lately I've been working as a copywriter. I have been at communication agency Kreativ Kraft where I did copywriting, social media, SEO, articles and interviews.
I've been working as a director, director of photograpy, camera operator and editor with commercials for TV and cinema, short- and feature films, and music videos. I won an award for best director at an international film festival for my direction of independent feature film Kraftverk 3714.
I've been a freelance graphic designer, photographer, and an image operator for among others Swedish Tax Agency.
I got a bachelors degree in Graphic Design and Communication at Linköping university. Hoover here to se a list of courses (in Swedish at the moment). My bachelor thesis was about Augmented Reality and location-based storytelling.
Even if the written word always was closest to my heart I have long since been fascinated by storytelling in many different forms. Whether it's been directing films, designing graphics for covers, interaction intertwined with story in new media like video games, virtual or augmented reality, it has always been about storytelling.
Storytelling for me is evoking a feeling, to communicate an idea or a message, to convey a thought, or provoke a thought for that matter. Form and channel is secondary and only a means to tell the story in the best possible way. If there were such a thing I would like call me a pan-medial storyteller.
I like to work unlimited and multi-diciplinary so my work samples and portfolio shows a wide range from copywriting through video production to graphic design. More information can be found in the links below. Some pages are still in Swedish but I am working to translate them as soon as I can.
