More About Me

I was born in 1963 and I currently live in a suburb of Stockholm.

I've worked with programming, web pages, technical writing, teaching, playing music and translations.

I've studied musicology at the University of Stockholm, and also taken the course "Folkmusik i Norden", about the traditional music of the Nordic countries.

In 1995 I did some research on flutes in Swedish traditional music up to the beginning of the 20th century. You can read about this here.

In April 1996 I made two programs for the Swedish radio (P2) about Irish music.

I speak and write Swedish fluently (of course, I was born here, and I lived most of my life here).

But I also speak and write English fluently, since I went to an international school when I was little. My father worked for SIDA, the Swedish foreign aid, so we lived in both Tanzania and Portugal.

Because of my fluent English and my knowledge of traditional music, I have done some jobs such as writing texts for a samplers of Swedish traditional music for FolkNetSweden.

I have also given some lectures on Irish music (one of these was for the traditional music students at The Royal University College of Music in Stockholm).

From 1998-1999 I taught tin whistle classes every week at Kulturama, and I've taught some weekend classes at other places before and after that. I've also taught private lessons.

In the spring of 2001 I taught music classes in Upplands-Väsby for 12-14 year olds, because they had a theme of Irish music.

Over the years I've collected a vast number of tunes, since I write down the "dots" for every tune I learn. More than 1900 of these tunes are available in ABC format on the web.
