I received my Masters Degree in music pedagogy at Piteå School of Music at Luleå University as a student of Anders Åstrand. Right after finishing my studies I became a founding member of the percussion group Global Percussion Network (GPN) together with Anders Åstrand and Daniel Saur. GPN has toured and performed around Europe, Asia, South and North America.
Between 2006–2015 I held the position as principal percussion and solo field drummer in the Swedish Army Band. As a military musiscian I got to travel and perform in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Schwitzerland, France, Afghanistan and Kosovo.
Since 2001 I’m a member of Ensemble Villancico. This ensemble has toured more than thirty countries with its Early World Music repertoire – foremost Latin American baroque music and early music.
Besides performing and teaching I’m also composing and producing music on my own label. 2 CD:s were released in 2017: #marimbagram and Postcards. In February 2019 the EP Active 24/7 was released.
