About

Hello! 👋 I am a User Experience (UX) Specialist from Sweden. I have an everlasting curiosity for the human mind and technology. I enjoy exploring how people navigate complexity in order to create great product experiences.

My strength lays in research, and I am also proficient working with code and design. I appreciate an agile workflow and welcome interdisciplinary team work. My aim is always to make UX Work inspiring and exciting for stakeholders and co-workers.

I have work experience ranging from academic labs, startups and large corporations. I have been consulting in web development since 2013, where I managed projects from start to finish, with responsibilities in both design and front-end implementation. I appreciate the interplay between great UX groundwork and pragmatic design solutions.

I have a strong academic background, with a Bachelor’s degree in Cognitive Science and a Master’s degree in Human-Computer Interaction. This has assured me with knowledge and skills for developing great product experiences, fit for the human mind and its capabilities.

When I am not spending time with technology, I tend to be in nature, either hiking or biking. I picked up coffee making during the pandemic, and believe that the best cup of coffee is made and enjoyed outdoors.

Skills

My primary skills circle around creating a great User Experience for a product or a service. That includes conducting profound research, collaborating with key stakeholders to inform design decisions.

I enjoy working close to the development team, so that UX Work can be transformed to pragmatic solutions. Moreover, as I read and write code on my free time, able to communicate efficiently with developers, graphic designers and stakeholders. Read more about my skill set below 👇
