[what few know]

  • I inadvertently gave birth to my daughter at home, assisted only by my husband. When the ambulance finally arrived, the coffee was already brewing.
  • Platformers are a passion of mine. On top of the list of my favourite games are Unravel (from Swedish Coldwood Interactive) and Ori and the Blind Forest.
  • Untrained, I managed to complete the MTB course Cykelvasan (94 kilometer). It was painful, to say the least.
  • I love to mingle and network. You'll find me at every event I manage to squeeze into my calendar.
  • I have both the green and the red certificate for climbing. I find the problem-solving very stimulating.
  • I got married dressed in yellow Gore-Tex.
