I first caught interest in this field of work in the late 80s when I moved from Malmo, Sweden to Los Angeles, California, USA and stayed for about a year.
Once back in Sweden I thought about my future plans but I started to work as what you would call a cable guy and I saw a lot of TV, believe me. When the company went bankrupt three years later I stood at a crossroad: Get an education in the field of my interest or keep on working to pay the bills, I chose paying the bills.
A couple of years later after working in the security business, in the second half of the 90s I finally came to my senses and got a college degree as an Multi Media Producer. The final semester was almost all about advanced Film Design and the tool was After Effects. Needless to say, I was hooked, and have been ever since!
I'm currently unemployed after working for a TV/WebTV production company for a year (cut backs), and right now I'm working on my Reel, doing some minor freelance stuff, and looking for employment at production companies in the south of Sweden.
