About Me


Me and Games


The first game I owned as a kid was Final Fantasy VII, and it was the first game where I played with systems. Since then, I've devoutly played games almost every single day, but it wasn't until I played Metal Gear Solid - with its gameplay and story - that I knew in my heart I wanted to make games.


Previous Experiences


Initially, I detoured as a physical therapist where I conducted exercise therapy, project management, and mastered dry-needling. Later, I did graphic design commisions, and then underwent the Game Designer program at FutureGames.


During my time there I had many objectives related to my role as class representative, member of the Wellness Council, as well as taking part in the school marketing campaigns. My focus during the education there was systems and tech, and now I am a budding Systems Designer.


To me, systems design makes up the backbone of any game. Whether it's the weapons system or the overall combat – I strive to embed myself in it, to be as close to the game as I can. With a tweak of the numbers and spark in the script, the systems grow together into the games I make.


Me as a Person


As a person, I'm friendly and always excited to meet new people and expand my network. I'm a huge fan of tech-geek - I love experimenting and tinkering with PC:s and similar tech, and I have a vast collection of vintage games that you cannot separate from me.


Other than gaming, I spend my time doing nature and urban photography, which goes well with my biking hobby. Stockholm has been my home forever, but I still find hidden places wherever I go.

That's a little bit about me! Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I hope you've enjoyed my pieces, and that I have piqued your interest.
