I was born and grow up in Halmstad, but moved to Lund when I began my early university studies.
After having worked in economy and finance for many years, I felt I wanted to do something new and different. In the past I had, in my spare time, taken some distance courses in history in Lund, Gothenburg and Gotland. Therefore I decided in 2010 to leave business life and began studying history and archeology on a full time basis. My studies lead to one-year master level in history (2012) and in historical archaeology (2014). Since fall 2014 I am a PhD student in historical archeology.
I have during my studies been interested in different aspects of aristocracy, including entailed estates, patronage and patron galleries in churches. Towards the end of my education, I focused on aristocracy in an urban environment with a specific focus on Lund.
