Music has always been an integral part of my life. I got my first commission for the Swedish Public Service Broadcasting Company (SVT) at only 15 years old.
Many are the productions I have composed for since then, including productions for the Swedish National Theatre Dramaten, Stockholm City Theatre, Strindbergs Intima Teater, BBC, Zentropa, among others.
