About me

Let me tell you a little about me. Communication has always been my passion, be it in person or online, spoken or written. Writing is my first love and also my greatest strength.

With over a decade in international business, my strength lies in international communication and I have spent over six years helping international universities attract Swedish students by planning and executing their marketing activities. I believe that studying abroad is one of the best things you can do and I’m passionate to help others have as great of an experience as I had during my time abroad. Over the years have studied, lived and worked in Sweden and the UK, including periods in London, Brighton and Edinburgh. Even though I have been back in Stockholm since 2007, I have since then worked in a bilingual international environment to ensure my fluency in both Swedish and English.

With my interest in sports, mainly football, I also have a lot of experience writing columns, think-pieces and articles within that area, usually in combination with a layer of society and politics. I’m a co-founder of Klackspark, a football podcast run by three women where we discuss topics such as politics, feminism, society and mental health from a Swedish football supporter’s point of view. During my free time I’m also vice-chairman of Arsenal Sweden, an official supporter’s club with more than 6500 members and one full-time employee.

To me it’s important to work with companies and projects that find equality, sustainability and human rights as important as I do. I believe that we can make a difference together. Whether you need some help communicating your message, manage a project or someone who can talk to you about communication, writing, international education or football and society, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
