I am a DIY director, writer, editor and producer who have been making films for 15 years. My films have been shown at festivals like the Cannes film festival, San Francisco Frozen Film Festival and Hong Kong Art House Festival. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing and screenwriting from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Recipient of Västra Götalands cultural stipend 2016.
