SHORT & SWEET:
I'm a Creative Director, designer, and last but not least, a Viking. I was born and raised in Sweden. After 20 years of a steady diet of meatballs and ABBA, I decided it was time for a change and set sail for America. For the past 15 years, I have worked with leading entertainment companies such as Nickelodeon and Discovery. There may have been an Emmy involved at one point.
