But meanwhile I can tell you that I’m a freelancing product developer, designer and artist from Linköping, Sweden. I happily travel around the world for fun and in work.

My main interests are networking, contribution and collaboration. I make everything from front-end web design to furnitures. Digital to analog. Sketching to building. Ideas to reality. Basically the whole design process – and I love to see things come alive with an ethical and sustainable responsibility.

I get most of my inspiration from spiritual and transcendental experiences which shows me a way of living or a pattern that’s possible to engage in. Personal growth, consciousness and deep exploration is something I’ve always found interesting while it’s developing and reflecting my art and design in many ways.

Currently I’m full time employed at Östergötlands Museum, but I have the ability to do small projects aside. If you got an idea you think I can realise for you, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me!

jobs

2013 > Freelancing artist & designer

Selling my work as a graffiti artist during art school made it possible for me to start my own business. After a few years I was moving on to fine art and graphic design. Nowadays I mainly work as a designer in various projects, designing products, interior architecture and different kind of concepts. I got the "Jack of all trades - master of some" syndrome, which makes me an artist & designer always interested in exploring new genres, tools and ideas instead of deep diving into one of them. I have been diving into a few, therefore "some".
