About me

I was born in Värmland County in Sweden in 1975. Around the age of 22, I moved to the ancient university city of Uppsala to study social science and gained a Master’s degree in Peace & Conflict Studies in 2003. Thereafter I have lived and worked abroad in periods, in Lebanon, Kenya, Sierra Leone and Sudan, where I got experience from living in conflict areas.

For instance, I was involved in the re-building of a society shattered by war at UNDP in Freetown, worked with humanitarian aid in Darfur and tried out freelance journalism in Beirut. Following these trips, I have worked as a case officer at different public authorities in Uppsala.
