A professional troublemaker
I tell stories about the future that could happen, and help develop concepts around what should happen.
My mission is simple: to encourage society to question the narratives through which we experience our world, and to use that mass of critical thinking to enable conversations that will elicit the change that will better prepare humanity for the enormous challenges that lie ahead.Read more?
My current focus is:
What is the future of work and additive consumerism?
What are the relationships between work and education? What is innovation? How can technology impact the narratives of learning? How do we rethink our thinking and secure growth in a changing marketplace? How can we build an understanding of the complex equation of technology versus societal wants and needs? How can experimentation and creativity enable prosperity in a digital society? How is technology impacting economic development? What are the ethics and morals of the future?
Awakening. Business not as usual.
What is the societal hierarchy of needs for the future? How can technology shapes social behaviours? How can policy respond to social and cultural changes? How will automation and algorithmic intelligence impact society? What are the emerging narratives and trends that drive transformation? What is the value of our data and how can we harness its potential to improve our everyday life experience? How can the spread of social influences nudge our behaviours? What does it mean to be human in a world where technology enslaves our senses?

What is the value of our data and how can we harness it potentials to improve our every day life experience? How the spread of social influences nudge our behaviours? What does it mean to be human in a world where technology enslaves our senses?
I have spent my adult life — and most of my childhood — engrossed imagining the future and the potentials that drive it. As someone with atypical curiosity – I found myself sailing with Captain Nemo, escaping the ordinary into the land of wonder.
By high school, I decided that the formal education system is more a pipe designed to feed the “norm” rather than a place to build up curiosity — a lesson I carried with me throughout life. As a result, I chose a path that will always challenge me and the status quo (therefore the troublemaker). But also be governed by a unique side effect – enabling me to look back into the present. I build up my career on “things that I knew that I didn’t know.” I always took assignments that I hadn’t done before. I regularly pushed myself to explore new fields, tools, and methods that would redefine my vantage point on any given challenge.
I currently reside in Gothenburg, Sweden. I’m splitting my time between helping clients track, understand and react to the enormous changes that humanity is facing and to create new opportunities for their business at TEMPUS.MOTU, asking questions that can ignite engagement around Visions, Collaborations and Contextual Structures, and enable clients to capture a future that is both sustainable and resilient at Black Swan Theatre. I travel and change the way we experience the world, the way we think about thinking, and transform the way we understand change. I give speeches that frame questions and help people identify and abandon old paradigms and rethink thinking.
