I was born in Sweden and in my early years I lived in Gothenburg. At age ten the family moved to Stockholm, where I spent my formative years.
After graduating as Bachelor of Engineering I returned to Gothenburg, where I took up a post at Kodak AB.
In 1971 I immigrated to Australia and continued to work for Kodak (Australasia) in the Computer centre. I have worked as a Software Engineer and Computer Consultant. At Edith Cowan University I was the universities representative at Apple University Consortium (AUC). During this time I was also a member of the AUC Executive Board and the Chairperson of Apple University Developer Fund (AUDF).
