Born: On the 29:th of April, 1979

Civil Status: Single

Occupation: Lawyer

Music: An impossible question. But the first things that come into mind are Johnny Cash, Kent, Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin, Springsteen, The Doors, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Ennio Morricone, Saban Bajramovic, Cornelis Vreeswijk, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Judas Priest, System of a Down, Dolly Parton, 16 Horsepower, José Gonzales, Nick Cave…

Films: I used to watch a lot more movies a couple of years ago. But I still keep a lot of directors as true genius: Fellini, Bergman, Scorsese, Woody Allen, Ang Lee, Sergio Leone, Emir Kusturica, Terry Gilliam, Tarkovsky. I also love the TV-series “The Office (UK)” and “Six Feet Under”.

Books: My favorite writer at the moment is Salman Rushdie. I’m also a great fan of the Harry Potter-books.

I laugh at: The Office, The Simpsons, Hassan, The Marx Brothers, Monty Python, Fellini’s movies, when people hit their heads and stumble, lavatorial humor, funny accents and unsuitable behavior in “serious” situations (such as board meetings, job interviews, churches etc).

I like: Drinking with my friends, when people help each other for no personal gain, being in love, playing tennis and of course playing with Depressive Art.

I hate: Ruthless people who would do anything to fullfil their ambition of gaining power, greed and selfishness and general stupidity, igonrance and narrow-mindedness.

I believe: That you need three things to have a good life: One, a meaningful relationship, two, a decent job of work, and three, to make a difference. (stolen from “The Office”)
