I am a designer who is passionate about finding solutions to people's problems that feels like natural nodes in our everyday flow of life. I aim to create objects that enhance the human experience and strive towards better life quality for all.

 

From my 2 years of experience as a designer I have worked on refining my craftsmanship to be able to bring creative solutions into finished products. I love working together with people and value the stories people have shared with me. I believe stories are the foundation to good design.

Here is my education.

As a designer I strive to create a symbiosis between form and function to make people's lives more enjoyable.

Below is a little about myself and my aspiration.

This is my work experience.

Master studies in industrial design

For a year I studied design with projects in product, service, transportation and interaction design, working both individually and in groups to become better at doing design research and executing ideas into concepts.

Luleå University of Technology

Bachelor industrial design engineer

At LTU I studied ergonomic, technical and aesthetic aspects of design with the focus on the person and environment the design is aimed for. From LTU I learned a lot of the skills related to CAD, manufacturing techniques and ergonomic assessments I use today.
