About

I started writing screenplays in 2008 and haven’t stopped since. A common thread throughout my work is relationships and family ties. How we cope with life and death, love and conflict.

I have written seven short films, three of which I have also directed and produced, and three feature screenplays. I also commissioned and co-wrote the Telly Award-winning YouTube hit Swedish Midsummer for Dummies (2012) as well as Swedish Lucia for Dummies (2013). 

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.
