My self-summary
I'm half Swedish and half South African, which are as far apart temperamentally as they are geographically. I fend off any kind of identity crisis by reminding myself that despite everything, they're in the same time zone.

Meanwhile, here in New York, I spend my days at a magazine, walking the line between advertising and journalism, writing some things when I have to and others when I have time.

Generally, I'd rather be writing, listening to music, or drinking with a few friends in a dimly lit room wondering when the robots will take over.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find a balance between ambition, imagination and reality.

Bodies of water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything virtual reality is going to do to real reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
with a beer and friends in a place where we can sit, unless there's a band playing, in which case I'm happy to stand.
