Jag bor i Norrköping, men har hela världen som min arbetsplats. Jag brinner för det som händer i världen.
Jag illustrerar böcker, jobbar som formgivare och animerar korta filmer. Jag gillar att skapa nya kontakter med människor, eftersom varje människa har något nytt att tillföra. På fritiden tycker jag om att träna, spela schack, läsa litteratur, både fakta, skönlitteratur och dikter och lyssna på musik. Både i mitt yrkesliv och privat håller jag mig uppdaterad om lokala, nationella och internationella nyheter.
