Born in Malmö, Sweden (and thus a fan of both salty liquorice and strong, black coffee) and based in London (where I've learned to love salt & vinegar crisps), I specialise in all aspects of travel, culture and lifestyle, and have had features, reviews and interviews published in The Guardian, Condé Nast Traveller, Sydsvenskan, Make It Last, and many other places (see my portfolio here).
I have been a London reporter for Radio Sweden (Transit i P3; P3 Planet; P3 Tro - all produced by Massa Media), and will shortly start producing a podcast that combines my interests in history, travel & culture. In 2006, I was a freelance researcher on 'Suez: a Very British Crisis', a three-part documentary broadcast 16-30 October 2006 on BBC2 (producer: Peter Molloy; assistant producer: Jo Glanville).
Before going freelance, I was the editor of CNTraveller.com 2007-10, and earned a BSME-nomination for my work on Bridesmagazine.co.uk in 2007. I have run several successful social media campaigns, including establishing CNTraveller.com and Cult Beauty on Twitter and Facebook. I'm also an experienced copywriter and picture editor, and I often carry a camera on assignments.
In 2015, I passed my PhD examination at Birkbeck (where I founded and edited The Birkbeck History Research Students' Forum - a community website for the history department's research students) without corrections; you can read more about my research here. I also have a BA (Hons) in Journalism with Contemporary History from Queen Mary, University of London and City University, and an MA in Contemporary History and Politics from Birkbeck, University of London.
