Currently, I’m writing on my doctor’s thesis in literary theory at Stockholm university. My objective is to work with communications for a public company or authority.

Until recently, I was responsible for translations and web content at Järva Interpreting & Translating Agency in Sweden. I have also been working for IOGT-NTO (a Swedish branch of the International Organisation of Good Templars), the Swedish Institute, and the Consulate General of Sweden in New York.

As a graphic designer, I have been employed by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Tourist Association, the Nordic Ministerial Council, book publisher Rabén & Sjögren, and others.

I have studied communications and arts subjects at some of the foremost universities in Sweden and the US. I have also attended courses at Santa Barbara City College in California, the Institute of International Education (IIU), ETC Akademin and Folkuniversitetet in Stockholm.
