Hello there! I’m a freelance Creative Director working in Stockholm. I’ve worked within the creative industry since I graduated Hyper Island 2010. After working in-house for a couple of years I decided to go freelance full-time in 2013 and I've worked for myself ever since.

My freelance work has taken me to multiple countries around the world and push me to explore different fields in this industry. The past eight years I’ve worked with branding, graphic design, photography, videography and digital experiences like apps, virtual reality and chatbots.

Due to this broad spectrum I would consider myself more as a generalist than a specialist, but if there’s something I find in common with all my projects it’s storytelling. I believe that telling a good story is the best way to connect with your audience, independent of the tech or media you’re using. It has driven me to write and direct my own short films & documentaries and create digital products and services.

Nowadays my main focus is on product branding, with my own photo studio in Stockholm. Please connect with me if you want to collaborate or just grab a coffee and have a chat.
