I work on the forefront of governance innovation, devoted to upgrading the tools available to distribute power, make and enforce decisions. I am the co-founder of the Future Of Governance Agency (FOGA), which officially opens its doors in November of 2019. I provide talks and workshops on power and governance-related topics and offer advisory services to governments and IGOs. I am the faculty in the future of governance at the Nordic branch of Singularity U, as well as in blockchain. Before this I was Director of Research at Bitnation where i delved deep into the civic tech space. Previously I was Executive Director of the Global Challenges Foundation where I, among other things, ran the biggest global competition to date in the field of governance innovation.

If you’re involved the reimagining power and governance, do reach out. I am always interested in learning about new projects and perspectives.

Beyond this I am the chair of Effective Altruism Sweden and run a live-in hackerspace in Stockholm, devoted to grow the effective altruism community in the Nordics.

Lastly, when time allows, I make visual art where I explore de- and reconstruction in a most literal sense. You can take a look at it here.

"To assume the truth of the conclusion of an argument in the premises in order for the conclusion to follow. It is a type of circular reasoning and an informal fallacy, in which an arguer makes an argument that requires the desired conclusion to be true. This often occurs in an indirect way such that the fallacy's presence is hidden or at least not easily apparent."
