1 Introduction 

My background in Social Science have given me the great ability to be authentic about people's needs and my background in Design and Arts have blessed me with a Scandinavian design expression and a big toolbox with a diverse set of know-how and creative tools. This is a composition of my work and proficiency in problem solving and project managing - divided into fourteen projects that I will give you a quick walkthrough of in this video.
