About Me

I'm a game programmer born in 1986, currently working at Avalanche Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. I have previously worked at Paradox Interactive and Toca Boca, and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from Blekinge Institute of Technology.

When I'm not programming, I like to play video games and board games, work on electronics projects, watch sci-fi shows/movies and listen to podcasts. Some of my favorite games are Dark Souls, Uncharted, Zelda, Psychonauts, Metroid Prime and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
