I make things.
I use code 💻️, LEGO 🧱, words ✏️, pictures 📷️, wood 🌲, and empathy 🥰 to create stuff. Let's make the world a bit more interesting.
Some projects I've made 💪
You're a dad
I'm making my first computer game. It's a silly text based adventure built around my experience of becoming a dad for the first time. Released when it's done™️.
More LEGO creations
In this feed I'm highlighting some of my favourite builds. There are more on Flickr. Want to see?
When building this site I just randomly started adding cats. People found them, commented, so I added more. Now there's a leaderboard.
The Beer World Championship is an (almost) annual event where a bunch of lovely drunkards get together and blind taste beer. Established in 2011.
Pallet side table
After the first studio was shut down, me and a few friends built a new one. My involvment only lasted for a year, but it was good fun with lessons learned.
I joined the web agency 040 as partner in 2012. It was a transformative experience. I got more confident coding, learned what it took to run a business, and found a home for our small team by merging it with another company.
A review aggregator for LEGO sets late 2017. I needed help knowing what sets to buy. It snowballed into a fairly complex system aggregating a lot of information. But the workload didn't scale. It ate up more and more of my time and money, and after essentially being dormant for two years - resulting in a deteriorating system - I decided to decommission the project in early 2023. It was not an easy decision to shut down one of my all time favourite projects, but enabled me to move on to newer things.
Me and my brother built and maintained a creative studio between 2016-2018. A fantastic time, a fantastic space.
Recreating childhood photos
For Christmas 2015 me and the siblings got together to recreate childhood photos as adults. It became an appreciated Christmas gift by our parents.
Linus learns to draw
Hell bent on developing some form of illustration skill, I drew and published a lot of crappy doodles.
Fake stories about real people
To practice storytelling I took portraits and wrote fake stories about them. One of my favourite projects.
Reflections on losing 215 000 SEK when you're 27
After a relationship crumbled and a house was sold at a loss, I had to rebuild. This short summary had a surprising amount of reactions when I first wrote it.
An early experiment with typographic scaling on the web.
Swooshable contains various online LEGO experiments focusing on making people better LEGO builders. There are few moving parts in the system, so it can stay running with fairly little maintenance.
I created an 8-bit themed site to hand over photos for an 8-bit themed wedding.
My uncle Hans
Losing a family member isn't easy. I wrote my reflections after a particular situation.

Works in progress and other small things 🤔
The sister and her boyfriend needed a new desktop, so we built one together. Just applied the second coat of linseed oil. Isn't it cool that wood exists and you can just do these kinds of things with it? This wood has literally gone from trash to something usable.
LEGO highlights in my LEGO office. Sweet.
Look at this awkward part. I need it exactly like this. Can't buy it. But I can draw it, send it to the printer and have it in my hand a couple of minutes later? At home?? We're living in the future!
Took stock of this beautiful piece by removing the hardware. I don't intend to use that, so now I can figure out what I want to use the carcass for. To start with it'll be my charging station. Good way to hide cables.
Get in touch 🤙
I use Flickr for most of my serious imagery. Instagram is for quick build updates. Github is where I store some of my code, and LinkedIn is for all you business types. I'm trying to get into the habit of using Mastodon. I've still got accounts on Facebook and Twitter, but try to minimise usage. There's also good old fashioned e-mail. If you really, really want to talk to me there's nothing wrong with a phone call. I'm available at+46 0736 504 195. Please sync with me in writing before calling.
To get a glimpse into what I'm up to right now you should check out my Now page and my Life todo list. If you've seen a cat on this site and want to know what that's all about, there's a page for that too. It's the Cats page.
In my day job I'm an engineering manager at IKEA, working on IKEA.com. That job, my projects, my family and life keeps me busy. This means I no longer do custom web work for clients unless it's really, really interesting. Please keep that in mind before reaching out.
