"The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers."
- Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)
What I’ve done recently (in the past ~3 years)
Run my own web development and online marketing company since 2007
Worked on the Sovereign Man project for a few years as marketer and COO, defying nation states and being part of generating millions of dollars in revenue.
Launched Sweden’s first “viral site” Hyllat.se modeled after Upworthy. I started it as an experiment to see if the same concept would work in Sweden and within two weeks (11 days to be exact) I had made it into a top 5 blog in Sweden, and one week later it was the biggest blog in Sweden and a top 20 website with 1.5 million visitors per week. The most shared article had been liked and shared over 120,000 times (which was likely a record in Sweden). I’ve since sold Hyllat to one of the biggest swedish competitors to focus on other projects.
Earned my Permaculture Design Certificate in 2013 through one of Geoff Lawton‘s courses
Launched the Radio Mises podcast in November 2013 for the non-profit research and educational center Ludwig von Mises Institute Sweden. I did everything from the podcast graphics and technical setup and still do ongoing audio post production and feed syndication.
