Sammanfattning

I lead teams, design experiences and ship new products and services. Twenty years international experience in both software and hardware in San Francisco, Chicago, London and Stockholm.

I love working with anything that genuinely improves the lives of people. I am particularly interested in digital transformation; bringing advanced technologies to consumers as well as in transforming industries, such as healthcare, through person-centered solutions.

My diverse toolbox is based on design thinking, agile principles and lean startup-methodology. I am especially skilled at synthesising diverse and cloudy situations into clear options and coherent strategies that rally people through successful implementation.

I believe that great product can change the world.
