Filmmaker and Editor 

I'm a multimedia journalist, born and raised in Sweden. I love combining work with travel and been living and working in NYC, Buenos Aires, Stockholm, Amsterdam. I am since 2015 based in London.


My past projects have included work for BBC in the UK, Al Jazeera, NPR in the US and SVT (Swedish Public Television). I have published articles and video episodes for Sweden's major newspapers as well as online platforms. Today, I freelance as a shooting producer and do all kinds of video productions in the UK -  from docs to corporate videos - and I have worked with several cinema cameras including, c100 (have my own), c300, FS5 and FS7. Moreover, I have a passion for video editing and work confidently in Premiere, Final Cut Pro and Avid.

I also work as a freelancing journalist and been published in major newspapers in Sweden and internationally.  


I'm driven by human interest stories and to shed light on injustice, and my previous documentary projects have covered themes as sexual violence, mental health problems and transgender.
