Professional Profile

I have a mixed background with University training including both Social and Computer Sciences. More specifically: Learning and Communication alongside Multimedia (as it was called at the time). This makes me a quite rare blend of technologist and humanist.

I have been working in the Media and IT industries since 1994. I live and work in Stockholm, Sweden but I have previously worked in other parts of Sweden as well as a short stint in Milan, Italy.

Between 1998 and 2006 I worked at Stockholm University. I divided my time between lecturing and heading up technology developments for it's IT programme called Multimedia, education & technology. Before leaving, I spent a year at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences.

Lectures and courses included subjects like Computer Graphics, Animation, Audio & Video, Web Design, Web Development and Game Programming.

Development projects included Intranet Community developments, Video streaming of lectures, online examinations and other Internet-supported distance learning projects.

In 2004 I started freelancing part-time (full-time from 2006) developing websites, web applications and campaigns for companies like DHL, Apple, Scandinavian Airlines, 7-Eleven, 3M and many other clients large and small. I have also worked in a small production company developing in Flash.

In December 2007 I joined 2 other crazy fools and set out to change the healthcare space. At least that's wheat we ended up doing. The company has a new name since April 2013. We are now Trice Imaging, inc.

Personal Profile

I have an affinity for computers, but you can probably guess that already. Generally I am interested in anything creative. Music, painting, photography, videography, programming. I dabble, or have dabbled in them all. And: Yes. Programming is very creative if you want it to be.

I grew up with lots of music in the house. Instruments, not stereo sets. My main instrument is the piano but I can make pleasant noises with a few other instruments if given a chance. This combined with an interest in computers and a disinterest in unreliable band members lead me to start using computers so make music. A computer is a stupid band member but it does exactly what I want exactly when I tell it to... :)
