Background

Born in Umeå and lived here the better part of my life. Moved to Malmö in 2004 for studies and ended up living there for ten years. Moved back to Umeå in 2014 to get closer to family.

My educational background is in Political Science and languages. I have studied at Umeå University and Lund University. I have also managed to do exchange studies in both Australia and Japan. Before I started at UID I was working as a freelance project manager. Focusing on projects dealing with civil rights, democracy and participation. The latest project I was involved in was Utopia World. A three-year project to raise awareness about democracy using games and experimental game design.

When I am not working at UID I try to involve myself in Umeå's alternative music and culture life. As a musician, promoter and organizer.
