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 🤔
Built a small plant in a hanging glass bulb last night. The build was pretty quick and simple, but getting it into the bulb required a fair amount of patience.
Do you know how AirPods have such good noise cancelling? AI.
I don't really need any more projects, but found this piece and fell in love with the design. I will restore and preserve the exterior. Not sure about the interior. Try to save the record player? Replace it with a more modern music system? Maybe rig the controls to do something else and learn a bit of arduino and electrical work? We shall see!
Been using these red boxes to sort my bricks for a while. They're good, but hard to use when stacked. Solved that problem by building this shelving rack out of mostly reclaimed timber. Happy with the functionality, but wish I would've spent more energy to make it pretty. I have so many things I want to get to a functional level in the space so this have to do for now. Maybe I'll revisit it in the future.
Get in touch 🤙
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.
