Born in southern Sweden and raised in the northern mountain region of Sweden. Now living in Robertsfors, about 60 km north of Umeå.

I am trained as a toolmaker and have worked in the metalworking industry, in many different professional roles, for a number of years. Before I started working at Umeå Institute of Design, I worked as a secondary school technology teacher for about 11 years. I have also worked as a part-time firefighter for a longer time.

What I do at UID

As a lecturer in 3D techniques, I teach in 3D software such as SolidWorks, Rhino Mesh Mixer and so on.

I also work with workshop education in the UID wood and metal workshops, this includes for example wood turning, vacuum forming, welding, metal turning and milling.
I also help out with the CAM preparation and 3D printing of files for UID students.

I am the fire safety delegate at Umeå Institute of Design, which means I have the responsibility to ensure that evacuation plans and fire prevention plans are followed and updated.
