I've been interested in structural strength since I was a child, later choosing to become a mechanical engineer, learning how to achieve high-quality products with optimized shape and light weight. I have a lot of experience from many different areas of engineering, like equipment for transformers (tap-changers and bushings), power towers and masts, machines, mechanisms, cranes and much more. As could be seen from the numbers of softwares I have used, I am a very quick learner which also means that I most often can understand a project or problem and start my work on it very quick. But I always try to have an open mind, knowing that good quality often comes from assessing several alternativs before choosing, An important goal is to give my customers early indications when finding room for improvement of a product/project. Many have been astonished by the speed of my work, but quality is more important for me than speed. Of course, high speed often means lower costs in the end.

  • University Lecturer University of Gävle · Part-time Jul 1999 – Dec 2008 9 yrs 5 mos Gävle, Gavleborg County, Sweden Teaching CAD, FEA and product development for 10 years at the University of Gävle, Sweden on advanced levels of CAD and product development, including writing books used by other universities.


  • University of Gævle Bachelor , Mechanical Engineering 1996 – 1999

Other experience

  • Technical illustration Using technical drawing tools, making more "consumer oriented" graphics and maps than mechanical drawings. Also writing lots of technical reports during the years, sometimes involving technical drawings to describe the problems better than CAD-renderings could.
  • Technical writing Writing/producing CAD-instruction books for Pro/Engineer back in the years (hidden). Some of the material, describing product development for CAD, still lives on in another book for Autodesk Inventor, with a co-author.
