How did I get here?

Life is what happens to your plans. A childhood filled with books, summers at my family's cottage, a super-8 film camera, a Nikon FM.

I grew up with the home computers of the 80s and pursued an engineering degree. The idea was to become a software developer, the storyteller in me had other plans.

A few years later I earned a bachelors degree from Tisch School of the Arts at New York University - storytelling, narratives, script-writing, and film production. Spent a lot of time in the NYU Computer lab, and one semester at Charles University in Prague, Czechoslovakia, during the collapse of the Soviet union.

I started my career as an e-learning producer and writer. Project manager for web development at ICON Medialab in London, then founding my own video production company in Stockholm. The initial team of three grew to eight in our own studio.

Media producer for streaming and broadcast at the Swedish National Lottery, and product manager at Deluxe Entertainment. At Deluxe we disrupted the Satellite Broadcast business with IP-links over the public internet and were nominated for the IBC Innovation Awards.

I'm a father of three and enjoy long distance running - you can follow my running adventures on Strava, and here's a great shot from racing Kullamannen 100 miles.

A big question

Images, voices, photographs, narratives. The fabric of the reality we live in. Deep-fakes, AI, speech-synthesis. Multiple narratives, multiple explanations. What can you trust? What can you believe in? We no longer have a shared understanding. Everything is possible, everything becomes relative. Inner journey to the tranquility of the soul, or external extremism and dogmatism?
