Bio


I have a Master of Fine Arts in conducting, piano and french horn from the University College of Music in Örebro. After the graduation followed conducting studies for Siegfried Naumann in Malmö, Stig Westerberg in Stockholm and Jorma Panula at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. I have also participated in many conducting programs and workshops over the world including École Normale de Musique (interpretation and score study) in Paris, and The Juilliard School (conducting) in New York.


The lack of opportunities for swedish conductors in the late 90s, made me to found my own chamber orchestra - Uppsala Sinfonietta. After a sucessfull first season along with  good recordings, possibilites opened up for launching a free lance career with support from maestro Herbert Blomstedt.

Since then, I have regulary appeared as a guest conductor with orchestras in Sweden, the United States, Mexico, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy and France.
