I have worked at Brunnberg & Forshed since 2007. I came from an architectural firm where I had been project manager for several housing projects in and around Stockholm. I have always worked at project offices with close ties to the actual construction work. What fascinates me is to see draft, designs and plans come true – it’s the best way of learning the difference between what looks good on paper and what actually works. I make use of my experience in my assignments in both the early and late stages of projects.

I took my architectural degree at the University of Uleåborg, Finland, with an exchange year at VPI in Virginia, USA. I worked a few years in Finland before moving to Sweden. I find it enriching to have worked as an architect in different countries and contexts.

Because what is being built shapes our everyday and future I prefer sustainable solutions. Both in terms of economy, ecology, and social relations. Social issues are particularly dear to me and I participate in the Master program Design for Sustainable Development at Chalmers School of Technology, part time as an extra teacher in Kenyan architecture. This is also a part of Brunnberg & Forshed’s R & D and CSR work.
