Background Born in Umeå and also grew up here. Except for four years, studying, in Stockhom I have been faithful to my roots. With a genuine interest in mechanics, electronics and the urge to simplify the life around me I decided to study engineering. 1990 I graduated from the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, with a Master of Science in Engineering specialized in the field of hydraulic and pneumatics. With a newborn knowledge on how to construct and control heavy mechanical equipment with just tiny small embedded systems (computers) brought me to the forest machine company Komatsu Forest (formely Valmet Logging). Automatic cabin leveling system (AutoLev), an environmentally friendly chain oil system (Eco Oiler), color marking system and a patent for an automatic chain saw tension with a quick change feature for harvesters are some examples of the work done during those exciting 8,5 years. UDK, IT-consultant firm just next to UID, became my next step. Late 1999 the Umeå Institute of Design, UID, searched for a new CAD & CAID lecturer. And now having the possibility to forward the cutting edge 3D-software knowledge to inspired students is hard to beat!
