Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think my friends would describe me as a nice person. As a rule, I
am quite friendly and positive. I would say I have a good sense of
humor and that I am a fun person to hang out with. I'm the type of
person who always would rather be out doing something with friends
than to stay in. I'm pretty adventurous and always trying new
I moved to Stockholm 3.5 years ago from Gothenburg where I lived
for 2.5 years. I originally came to Sweden to study for a master's
degree that I have finished now. I feel settled here and have
developed a good social and working life so I have decided to keep
living and working here for the foreseeable future.
You only get one chance in life, so it is important to take every
opportunity coming your way. This is one of the reasons I have
ended up in Sweden. I think the experience of traveling in and
living with other cultures / people is really valuable. So far in
life I have been fortunate to have traveled quite a lot. My
favorite places include New York, London, South America and Canada.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to keep me busy, both within and outside of my work as a
graphic designer. My career is very important to me. I think it's
really rewarding to be able to work in something that I like. Money
does not motivate me in this regard as the most important thing for
me is to create designs that people can enjoy and find
Currently I have my own business and I'm feel lucky to be able to
work on a variety of design projects that cross international
boundaries and seem culturally worthwhile.
Going to start some new winter hobbies this year. Maybe some
lindy-hop dancing or something like that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having an obsession with all aspects of design :)
I've played football all my life. Don't know if I'm 'really good'
when compared with a professional although I've played to a
reasonably good amateur level.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read quite a lot so choosing any favourites is hard. Authors I've
enjoyed recently include David Peace, Irvin Welsh, Cormac McCarthy,
James Ellroy, Terry Pratchett, and Barry Unsworth.
Another tough one. Making an exact top five films would be
impossible but my favourite directors are people like Wes Anderson,
Michael Mann, Guillermo Del Toro, Ken Loach and Danny Boyle. I try
to go to the movies as often as possible and am equally at home
with small independent movies as I am with the occasional
I don't get a lot of time to watch TV in general but the programs
I've enjoyed most recently include, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The
Office (US & UK), South Park, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and
This can vary week to week however consistent themes are mainly
British artists from 80's groups like The Smiths/ through to 90's
Brit-pop bands like Oasis/ through to through to dance groups like
Underworld and Faithless/ and more recent groups like The Streets,
Gorillaz and Dizzee Rascal. I'm always exploring Spotify to find
new stuff to try.
Anything really, French/Italian/Indian/Chinese/Thai. As long as it
tastes good I'll eat it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1_The friends I have grown up with since I was a small boy
3_The opportunity to work, learn and improve myself through
4_Freedom to live in a safe society that seeks to improve
conditions for all people.
5_The opportunity to travel and explore new places.
6_Books and films for entertainment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How design and politics are shaping the future of the world and my
time in it... No conclusions as yet!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Nearly always out with friends at a bar, party or vernissage. I've
never enjoyed staying in on a Friday or Saturday evening so I'm
usually with people somewhere.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone who can enjoy the same things I do, but
more importantly someone who enjoys life and tries to make the best
of their situation. Personality is important for me and a cheerful
disposition goes a long way. I like positive creative people who
have a good sense of humor and can take and give a joke. I
gravitate towards people who are ambitious and have goals in life.
Generally, people that can keep themselves mentally and physically
stimulated by new challenges.
