I have written nine short dramas, four of which I have directed and produced, plus three feature screenplays. In 2019 I wrote my first children’s book ”Semla, tio dagar extra allt” which was published by Idus publishing house the same year. I commissioned and co-wrote the Telly Award-winning YouTube hits Swedish Midsummer for Dummies (2012) as well as Swedish Lucia for Dummies (2013). In 2021 I completed my first teen novel, a coming-of-age drama and love story for girls aged 15 to 19. Set in the 60s/70s and present day.

My studies include a Master’s in Screenwriting from Screen Academy Scotland, feature film screenwriting at Berghs School of Communications, and directing at FilmCentrum in Stockholm.
