About me

I love solving end user problems together with a group of highly skilled people. Over the years I've been fortunate to work closely with some of the most fantastic people. Right now I get the opportunity to do so within the Facebook organisation, focusing on solving the everyday problems for users and companies advertising on the platform.

I've come to learn that great and high-performing teams are created from trust, and trust comes from showing vulnerability. If more product managers focused on building a strong culture in their teams, I believe teams would become more impactful and less people would burn out.

Also, I love sports... Frölunda FC, BK Häcken, Tottenham Hotspurs & Las Vegas Raiders are the teams I acively cheer for and watch, but I watch almost any sport with big joy.

At Forza Football I was part of building a live score application for football. Our goal is to become the best app out there by covering every football match in the world. On top of that we fought against inequalities, racism, homophobia, and corruption within the sport in different ways.

Hardware enabled guestflow analytics

Vnu provided venues, such as nightclubs, with hardware which enabled them to capture exactly when the guests arrived and left. This enabled them to view, compare, and analyze their guestflow, both in real time and historically. No more guesswork required when staffing, analyzing marketing or event organizers results.

We put Vnu down in June 2017.

Norwegian Android App

New Android Application

During my summer internship at BEKK Consulting in Oslo, Norway, I helped Norwegian Airshuttle AS to refresh their Android application with their new brand. The app is used to handle your mobile ticket, boarding pass, help you to book new tickets, checkin to your flight, search for flight arrival and departure times and adding existing travels to your account. It is basically your travel assistant when on the go.

A week dedicated to #gbgtech

Every year during a week in May we gathered different events in order to open up the tech and startup community of Gothenburg - #gbgtech, to the public. Hackathons, seminars, networking and some startup competitions together became the content of #gbgtechweek. Me and my friend Linus Olsson founded it in 2015, and were early on joined by Malin Kjällström who now drives this initiative. During my years we gathered around 2,500 visitors and 25 events every year.!

Gothenburg Startup Hack 2015

Hackathon on a boat

Gothenburg Startup Hack is one of Scanidinavias most prestigeful hackathons and was founded in 2014. In 2015 I was asked to join the team to organise it. It was one of the events during #gbgtechweek and we went a bit crazy and organised it on a boat, travelling around in Gotheburgs archipelago during the day. Partners to the hack was Spotify, Burt, Recorded Future, Giphy, Google and several other companies.
