After spending years abroad in the US (California) and UK (London) I moved back to Sweden to work for Stockholm Records in 1996 (June 1, -06). In 2001 I was appointed Head Of A&R at Universal Music. In August 2008 I decided to start my own business focused on independent A&R-work and management. Almost 15 years down the line I enjoy my work more than ever. To spot and develop talent is greatest job one can have.
