As a child, I was lucky enough to know exactly what I wanted to do – Losing myself in the worlds of American heroes such as Butch Cassidy, John Wayne and others – playfully searching for characters’ simplicities and complexities, differences and similarities. 
 
Years later, I found my place, amongst the madness and the beautiful chaos of New York City, home of the Beatniks and lost boys, all looking for similar dreams. After I completed an acting programme in NYC my journey headed towards Los Angeles to continue education, alongside this, I landed roles in various short films and commercials… the highlight, the lead in an ARRI campaign which took me out to the deserts of California which was shown at the Academy Awards the following year, and playing the ‘Hartley’ in the feature film ‘Chemical Cut’ shot in Hollywood and in Silverlake, CA. 
 
I was awarded an acting scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts where I harnessed and perfected my craft, focusing mainly on in-depth acting techniques.
 
Today I’m based in Stockholm, most recently working on the series ‘Dröm’ on the SVT network.
