I'm a Swedish journalist and documentary film producer/director based in London. In 2011, I went to New York and started working as a multimedia journalist. This is when I learned all aspects of filmmaking- from shooting, producing to editing.
In recent years, I have focused more on long-form storytelling. I obtained a MA in Documentary film at UAL (University of the Arts London), and my grad film was nominated for BAFTA qualifying festivals.
My past projects have been commissioned by BBC, Netflix, Al Jazeera, Nat Geo, NPR and SVT (Swedish Public Television). I'm passionate about human interest stories, intimate portraits and always curious to explore themes that tend to go under our radar. I've covered everything from gender rights, mental health and environmental stories, to art and entertainment.
Recent projects have been longlisted for BAFTA, nominated at BIFA for Best Documentary and Best International Current Affairs at the RTS Awards.
Today, I freelance as a shooting PD and do productions in the UK and worldwide - from tv documentaries to branded content. As an experienced self-shooter, I've worked with various cinema cameras and have my own camera and lighting kit.
