Who are you? Tell us a little bit about you and your educational background

I live in Reftele with my partner, daughter, and a Labrador puppy. Sports have always been a big part of my leisure time, both watching and participating myself. I am currently a coach for a girls’ team (football) in Reftele and usually take part in some recreational races per year, such as the Lidingöloppet.

I studied mechanical engineering at Halmstad University and have worked as a designer for about 20 years since then.
