About me

I am a graduated director from Northern School of Film and Television in Leeds, UK, who has worked with culture in 20 years.

My absolute strengths are dialogue, instructing actors and knowledge of human nature. I have directed 12 episodes of the drama television series "Riverside", been the casting director of 12 feature films, including "Johan Falk" and "Bang Bang Orangutang" where I had over 3000 auditions. I have also directed 2 plays, 1 commercial, 2 music videos and 7 short films. Yearly, I have courses in acting, auditions and body language and have been writing screenplays most of my life.

My inspirations are: Woody Allen, The National, Helen Mirren, William Shakespeare, mother, Morrissey, James Ellroy, Arsenal, Gudrun Schyman, John Cleese, Placebo, Jeff Bridges, poker, William Hurt, Depeche Mode, my kids, Paulo Maldini, Julianne Moore, old Soviet ice hockey, Tom Hardy, Stanley Kubrik, Marika Lagercrantz, my real friends, Reine Brynolfsson, Isabelle Huppert and people who are good at something and enjoys life.

I´m fluent in English and plays a mean badminton and poker, I live in Mölnlycke just outside Göteborg.

As a person I would describe myself as creative, witty, reliable and well organized, welcome to my web page!

I hope we will get the chance to work together in the hard but wonderful world of culture.
