My creative career began in the early nineties, when a happy young Gun drew an absolute garbage drawing that my kindergarten teacher praised like the Mona Lisa. It was taped onto the refrigerator and after that, there was no going back. Creating is what I love, whether it's animating, illustrating or designing. 

I studied Media Communication which gave me a deeper theoretical understanding of the industry. Realizing that I craved the practical side and to create more, I then studied Motion Graphics at Hyper Island, after which I interned at the brilliant studio Brikk. I'm now working as a freelance animator and illustrator based in Stockholm. I've had the pleasure of working with clients such as Toca Boca, Bonnierförlagen, Svensk Kollektivtrafik, Johnson & Johnson and Åhléns.
