My goal in life is to go the moon. In the meantime I engineer solutions and push boundaries.
Engineering is like a journey with the end product as its destination. The excitement is in the journey. Identifying a seemingly impossible goal, learning from others, working together, and then fixing those inevitable snags that always try to come between you and success.
I push boundaries within myself, too. I hike ever higher mountains, fly wing suits, and BASE jump. And I love to ask myself the question: “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”
I’ve taken a long and winding path from a farm in the south of Sweden to the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. I grew up around tools and mechanical things, taught myself programming and computer networks, and had my own company when I was in high school, selling computers and IT support. Academically, I’ve progressed through physics, math, and computer science to software engineering and, most recently, a masters degree in Space Engineering from Caltech.
My strength is that I am adaptable and versatile. I can transition between the big picture and in-depth specialization, between theory and practice, and between being a member of a team and a team leader.
In short, I’m a hard working engineer who loves to take on daunting tasks, adding value, making an impact, and simplifying complexity.
