About me

What about me?

Background

I consider myself a lucky bastard, because my work has always been my hobby. I have had several hobbys, photography, graphic design, Illustration, painting and cloth design… to mention a few. And I have managed to try almost all of them as a professional as well.

I grew up in a somewhat creative family. My dad who was a news graphic illustrator, used to take me to painting classes and he gave me my first photography classes and my fist real Nikon camera. My mother who sewed the most creative outfits for me and my brother tought me the craft of sewing and making out modells. With this in my luggage there was never a question of wether or not I should focus on a creative work, I just hade to pic one.

I studied Photography, Graphic Design and Illustration in High School. After that I continued to study Photography in Boston, New England School ofPhotography. But I soon realized it was a to narrow focus for me, I needed to use more of my creativity. So I went back to Stockholm and started to study Multimedia and Design on Capital School of Multimedia instead. This was really interresting and I just loved making web apps and web pages. It was design, writing and illustrating all together, fantastic smile After finishing at Capital School of Multimedia I started as a Graphic Designer at a web consultancy in Stockholm. This was the beginning of a (hopefully) life long career. I have now worked in a lot of projects, in different teams and on different companys. And I have learnd a lot! I think internet is the most fantastic medium to work with because of the interaction and social abilitys. I will probobly never leave it.

My professional goal today

My goal today is to enjoy life. And to me work is a big part of life. What makes me happy is to find creative and usefull solutions to problems. That is why I want to work in a creative environment with a lot of chalenges, facing and solving problems together with team members. I want to be able to make a difference to the client and to the team - finding the best solutions together and make things happen. I want to use my knowledge and experience to help and bring profit to the firm I work for and the clients they hold.

What i do when I´m not a professional

I live in a suburb to beautifull Stockholm, Stuvsta, with my big and wonderful family. My husband Mathias, our three children and our three cats and one dog.

Since we love the archepelago, we also have a boat where we spend most our weekends on in the summers (enjoying), and some nights and weekends in the spring (working). I also like to spend some time in the garden, since I enjoy and need that slow pace sometimes.
