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?
The Beer World Championship is an (almost) annual event where a bunch of lovely drunkards get together and blind taste beer. Established in 2011.
My life todo list
I'm keeping a list of notable me-things, todo and done. The idea is to appreciate things I've accomplished and stay inspired to do new awesome stuff.
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 🤔
Been gluing and sanding these panels for a month. Now I'm finally at the stage sane people, who buy premade stock, are. I can finally cut the parts for this simple cabinet.
I think I've finally got all the pieces I need for my work setup. I've got a USB switch so that I can use one keyboard, mouse and headphones for two computers, a nice screen on an arm, and wired network to both. Aesthetics and cable management has a long way to go, but I'll fix that when I build a custom tabletop... eventually.
Sun is out, time to make the garden nice! The first task of the year was to use some reclaimed stones to build a platform for this little greenhouse we bought last year. Found some cat poop. Ew.
My mom does this thing where she visits animal rescues and then comes home with new pets. We've heard "it was lonely and needed a home!" so many times in our family. I think I'm turning into her. Going through a second hand store I found this... thing! The middle is whittled from a single piece of wood into three interlocking chains. It's probably been part of a larger structure, because there are holes in the bottom and it doesn't stand straight. But I couldn't pass it up. It is so evident that a lot of hand tool hours has been put into this piece, and while I don't know what to do with it yet, the worst outcome will be me stabilizing, refinishing, and finding a new home for it as a table. After all, it was lonely, and needed a new home.

I use Flickr for most of my serious imagery. 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, Twitter and Instagram, 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.
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.
