I first saw the light in late november 1988. My mom looked like an angel and my dad started to lose his hair. I have a younger brother and he have made it his life mission to succeed me in every way possible. We grew up with a beautiful, loving and patient Hamilton hound by our side. In 2009 I left the Timrå in search for higher education at Uppsala University.
I love design because it is all about learning and learning is fun because it embraces trial and error. I dare to stray because failing is a great way of learning new things. “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.” - Confucious
I am both a thinker and a doer and I love my work. I reason that there are so many possibilities so why not try to do it all. Of course this reasoning usually backfires as it overwhelms me. I struggle sometimes because I start formulating rules, a strategy that backfires when I paint myself into a corner. One of the more important things I have learned is to accept that nothing ever turns out the way you think it will. The secret is really that said rules are going to be broken and that's perfectly OK. The second more important thing I have learned is that the best work I ever do is the work I do in collaboration with other people. Other people know things you don’t and they see the world differently than you do and I believe, figuring out how to tap into just a small piece of that data can set one up with inspiration for a lifetime.
