What´s your role at Lifesum?
I've joined as a Data Engineer. I'll be helping to make our product smarter in the way that it uses health and nutrition data, which should lead to more happy, healthy users.
Where are you from?
I was born and grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I still love the city for all the excellent south-east asian food, for the long surf coastline nearby, and of course for my friends and family back home. My mother is Swedish, originally from Trelleborg in the south, but my Swedish is pretty poor.
Why did you choose to work at Lifesum?
I joined Lifesum because I wanted to work on a product that would directly help people in their day-to-day lives, because the people here seemed interesting, and because I'm looking for a balanced life myself. I love that Lifesum has a good mix of Swedes and people from all over the world.
What do you do for fun?
I love to learn languages, travel, kayak and swim, especially in the surf. I spent a lot of time as a kid around a surf beach with large waves and strong currents, so I'm quite at home in the water. I love to be out in nature. In cities, I love exploring and photographing street art. Now and then you stumble on gold.
What's the strangest talent you have?
I'm fearless when trying out new foods. I love discovering unexpected combinations that work well together, and don't mind at all if they don't work out.
