What gets you up in the morning?
To walk my dog, first of all 🙂
I also look forward to learning new things every day. It’s important to stay hungry and foolish.
What is your best characteristic?
I observe, understand and analyse. I create order out of chaos and communicate complicated ideas in simple words.
Do you have any hidden talents?
While I can neither swim nor drive, I can change a light bulb and make tasty Swedish meatballs.
What interests do you have?
1. Reading: novels, magazines, articles. I’m not a fast reader, but I read something every day.
2. Make things: Anything from doodling to paper collage to sewing a shopping bag, I find time to make something with my hands every week.
3. Mobile photography: Ever since I downloaded Instagram on my telephone two years ago I’ve been taking and uploading pictures almost every day.
What is your dream destination?
I don’t have a to-visit list, because I believe in discovering something amazing wherever I go. I just need to have my mind and eyes open. But in general I’m more intrigued by older places. New urban spaces feel boringly similar, while all old towns are unique.
