Who am I?

I'm a newly graduated Industrial Designer, with a passion for Interaction Design, and would describe myself as an ambitious, curious, and passionate people-person.

I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and have always enjoyed being creative in different ways. Growing up I was really into sketching, painting, and especially dancing - which came to occupy most of my childhood and teenage years. After high school, I moved to New York with the purpose of becoming a dancer. I had a fantastic time, although I realized that I had instead found all the things I used to enjoy about dancing in design instead. I discovered how the practice of one creative discipline, such as dancing, really helped and inspired other ways of creating.

During the last few years, I have had the opportunity to gain experience through both education as well as different internships. I have gotten a great understanding of user-centered thinking as well as learned how to become a creative problem solver through using the design process. 

For the future, I would like to combine my background in Industrial Design with my passion for Interaction Design and digital solutions. My dream is to create products, services, and experiences that are meaningful to people and respectful to the environment.
