I'm a generalist. I solve problems. I connect things. I’ve started freelancing at the age of 15, doing Flash-related projects for espell, the translation agency that hired me full-time when I finished High School. For the next 5.5 years I worked in various roles at the espell group, including Language Engineer, Developer, System Administrator, Project Manager, and finally the Operations Manager of espell labs, the R&D offshoot of espell. I moved to Gothenburg in early 2013 for new challenges. I worked for Kommunicera, integrating CAT tools into their in-house Project Management System, and later on for WCOM AB, dipping my toes into the world of IT consulting, administering hundreds of Windows Servers, working with Cisco iOS networking devices and getting to know the ins and outs of Exchange and Office 365.
