The story so far.

I’m someone who loves solving puzzles - figuring out the big picture, breaking it down into smaller pieces and putting them all together again. I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working and managing talented cross-functional teams from Stockholm to Singapore and now Brisbane.
Besides leading teams and creating rich user experiences for consumers, my heart belongs outdoors. I grew up snowboarding and discovered a passion for rock climbing and diving. My most recent challenges are kite surfing and mountain biking now that I live in the tropics.
