By education I am an interaction designer, programmer and biologist. After finishing my bachelor in bioinformatics, I worked several years in the field of neurobiology and behavioural science. Later on, I studied Interaction Design in Göteborg. I worked in several jobs as a creative technologist, researcher, coder and ux designer as well as a freelancer in the fields of media arts, urban design, social- and interaction design, automotive design and autonomous driving. I am building hard- and software prototypes, interactive installations, web and mobile applications. A list of my exhibitions & publications is compiled below.
