Journalist, speaker and advisor on digital media. Considered one of Swedens most influential sociala media-expert and has worked with almost every major media house in Sweden.

Columnist in major newspaper Göteborgs-posten, and radio host on some of Swedens biggest radio shows. In 2014 titled ”rookie of the year” at the ”Grand national radio award”. In 2015 he was considered as Swedens third most influential journalist on Twitter, among other titles.

As a digital advisor I am working regularly with some of the biggest brands in Sweden. I have together with a client, Aftonbladet, created an open investigation-model for journalism that led to several nominees at the Grand investigative journalism-awards. In 2012 he co-founded the now disused citizen journalism-project Ajour. 2014 jurur of Digital media Asia awards. 2016 jurur at ”Grand national radio award”, the MEG media award, among others.

As a speaker I am sought after both nationally and internationally, speaking at many of the worlds biggest newspapers, as Hindustand Times in Dehli, Manorama Malayalam in Kerala and VnExpress in Vietnam. But also visiting and conducting conferences together with Wan-Ifra in Singapore.
As a speaker, lecturer or moderator my areas are mainly these:
