Personal

Fluent in Swedish (native), English, Good Italian, Some German.
Grew up in the south of Sweden where I finished the basic 9 year education. After school spending one year as an Au Pair in Milan, Italy, this was a great experience. I was moving to Stockholm at the age of 19. While supporting myself, I got part time or evening education for High School Diploma at the KOMVUX. The plan for further education was laid aside, since I got a job as Consultant.
A broad musical interest gave me a reputation as a party fixer and disc jockey. The music interest is still there, however more on a private level.
My interest in Art & Decoration has driven me to fulfill several renovation projects, 3 apartments and 2 houses. Both houses was old (1907 villa and 1825 mansion) and gave me a deep knowledge in work procedures, materials and traditional way of building, as well as room and furniture design.
After moving first to France, later to Switzerland, I took up downhill skiing and now recently also tennis. As an enthusiastic amateur photographer, I’m owning several cameras both automatic and SLRs, which I use frequently. Result will then be used in musical slideshows or other projects. I’m also an interested and active user of Photoshop. I have done several small projects, and still do, like school yearbook, articles, business cards, company newsletters etc. and can quite well manage graphical software.
I’m now active in the management of SWEA, Swedish women association of the German speaking Switzerland, as well as in the International school of my daughter, where I participate in activities like reading support.
I have a PADI scuba license – together with my husband, with whom I also have an 9 year old daughter. I’m also proud of 3 beautiful stepdaughters (19, 17, 12) from my husband’s first marriage who visit regularly.
