I’ve always had a need to express myself – even though in which forum I do so has become less important over the years, that need has only grown. I’ve been a singer for as long as I can remember, so that form of expression has always been there naturally. Thankfully it has been joined by writing, film, pictures, motion design and art over the years.

I attended Adolf Fredrik’s School of Music and then Kungsholmen’s Gymnasium/ Stochkolm’s Musikgymnasium through the age of 19 which means I’ve been singing more or less all of my conscious life. Something I consider completely invaluable nowadays. Being a singer has given me many things, one of which is the understanding of how to connect with people emotionally. Something I’ve found very useful in more or less every design project I have been involved in. 

Like many people born in the 90’s, I have a history in gaming. And that’s more concretely how I found my passion for graphic design. It all started with a user interface project that I co-founded when I was 16 years old. But it wasn’t until 2013 that I decided to get myself an education in graphic design. In May 2016 I graduated from the classic Graphic Design Programme at Berghs School of Communication.

Since September 2015 I have been working on my own as a designer/art director. There have been projects I've done professionally, things from my time as a student and some things that just happened because it was a lot of fun involved. I tend to let the latter run away with me, something I tend to see as a good sign.
