What drove you to become a competitive ski racer: Skiing was a natural choice for me since I am the youngest of five siblings and my whole family where already into the sport when I was born. So, it wasn't really an active choice, however the skiing turned out to suit my temperament perfectly.

I love... My girlfriend Matilda
I hate.. To lose

Define yourself in three words: Competitive, Calm,Humble(I hope)
I find inspiration.... When freesking with friends just for fun as it reminds me how fun skiing actually is. That’s makes me realize how happy I am to be able to work with what I loves most, skiing.

My greatest achievement is..... When I was born

My most treasured possession is.... Either my Nordica Jah Love skiis or my Djurgården team sweater edition 1993 (Swedish football team)

If I could live anywhere, it would be.... Close to the mountains during the winter and by the see side during summer… Sounds like I’m already living my dream

My interests other than skiing.... Photography, Surfing, Football

3 items I can’t live without..... Computer, camera, Phone

Money or Fame? Money

Beach or mountains? Mountains

Favorite book.. Conn Iggulden- Emperor Series

Favorite tv-serie… Entourage, Californication

Favorite films.. The Godfather Trilogy

Pet.... I´m not a fan of pets

Nordica because... I try to do all I can in terms of preparations in order to reach the top. This goes for everything, from training as hard as possible to making my body ready for success. But most importantly, a skier needs really good material to be able to reach the top. I started my realationship with Nordica three years ago when I realized they were the perfect brand to help me get there, to start winning World Cups and enable me to fight for the total Slalom globe.
