I’m a one-woman team

I'm a Swedish multimedia journalist based in London and Stockholm.
I write, film, edit and produce my own print and video stories.

After earning a bachelor's degree in journalism in Sweden, I moved to New York in 2011. In Manhattan I worked as a video reporter and photographer for 18 months. Upon returning to Stockholm I started to work as a broadcast editor for SVT, Sweden's public television.

In addition, my past projects have included work with NPR and SVT, and have been broadcast in the US, Canada, Holland, Australia and Sweden.

I have had the good fortune to travel around the world, and after falling in love with South America I decided to move to Argentina between 2014-2015.
Currently I'm based in the heart of London, and I am a candidate for a Master in Documentary Film at the University of the Arts London (UAL).

I do all kinds of video productions, from docs to corporate videos.  I have my own camera gear, including various tripods and rigs, radio mics, shotgun and lighting kit.  


I do post production and can work in Final Cut, Avid, Motion and After Effects. 


I write for travel magazines, newspapers as well as magazines within different organisations and industries.

Short Documentary

Here is a trailer for my short documentary about the magician, Fay Presto. It was selected and screened at Bertha Dochouse 2 dec 2016 for UAL’s grad show.

Fay Presto – The Queen of Close-up’ is a portrait documentary about the legendary Fay Presto; the UK’s most in-demand close-up and cabaret magician who would rather die on stage than quit performing. Influencing hundreds of magicians and making way for women in the magic world, Fay’s humour and brilliance has led her to perform for the Queen on six separate occasions as well as doing private magic shows in countless of celebrities’ homes. She recently begun work at The Box; one of London’s trendiest cabaret destinations and night clubs.
This 16 minute documentary reflects on Fay’s everyday life as a magician and, at age 70, an older woman in a youth obsessed entertainment industry. It touches upon gender roles and ageing, shows the struggle of earning a living as a performer, and, through her memories, gives us a glimpse into the glamorous days of the London 80s.
