MY STORY

HELLO, WORLD!
Born in Stockholm and a few short years later,

WELCOME TO CANADA!

  • Will never forget when the judge looked down at me as my dad was getting sworn in to be a Canadian citizen and said, “welcome to Canada”
  • Although I’m a Canadian I still have my military issue Swedish dog tags that give me a place in a bomb shelter (in Sweden so that makes it really convenient to get to)

THE LITTLE TRAVELER

  • Fairly normal happy childhood which was filled with travel and where I was surrounded by artists of all kinds.
  • Summers either involved lots of overseas travel: Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Gibraltar, Morocco or local travel within Ontario and the Eastern provinces or USA. I visited over 9 countries (some twice) before my first day of high school.
  • Theater & Writing was in my blood. In between seeing the world we were surrounded by my parent’s artist friends. I wrote and directed plays non-stop, experimenting and creating stories. A famous Polish director told me that a director has to know a little bit about everything. I’ve never forgotten that piece of advice.

“MERDE!”

  • Attended a culturally diverse French high school where my love of writing, theater, film and dance developed and grew. I stood up to the AV teacher when we didn’t agree on how a movie should start and that gave me the confidence to pursue my love of writing and film.

  • Film school obtained a BFA in screenwriting
  • Wrote and directed a short film

MY FIRST BIG MOVE & FIRST BUSINESS VENTURE

Blown away by the Social Media Revolution and the opportunities it’s creating (and I missed writing), one course later, STYLE ON THE SIDE WAS BORN
