With over a decade of international video-game business experience leading small and large groups of developers, marketers and business developers, I have developed a broad knowledge of videogame business, software and development.
I specialize in the roles ‘Game Producer’ and ‘Creative Direction’ though have fulfilled the posts of general management, producer, art-director, audio producer, marketer and business developer during the various phases of building out ISOTX and within the current startups I'm involved in.
Despite my broad knowledge in this area, my core strengths are the creative vision and strategic business development, though I’d like to include ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ to this list as well.
In recent years I've diversified the platforms and game-entertainment markets I'm involved in, and have worked with a number of popular television IPs.
At a young age I started creating my own videos, games, books, paintings, and much more. Creative output is what gave me purpose and direction in a constantly changing environment. As I grew older I specialized in videogames which allowed me to combine these things to create worlds, interactive stories and a new kind of fun to entertain people.
I built games, so called ‘mods’ for years until after winning the national Art-prize in Holland ‘Prins Bernhard Kunst Anjer’ I was able to start larger scaled projects using the reward-money. This then slowly grew out to becoming the start of my largest venture to date; ISOTX.
At the age of 23, after running into a group of investors, I got the chance to start a formal game-company called ‘ISOTX’. As a result of the years of hard work, traveling, living abroad and engaging in international business ISOTX grew from a 2-man company to having over 40, spread over 3 countries.
After almost 9 years I left ISOTX to pursue more creative ventures, and as my passion and dreams continue to grow, so does my desire to create games that entertain people for a long time.
As a child I grew up in various countries ranging from Sweden, to Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast and Holland.
This international upbringing fueled my desire to grow beyond the boundaries of a single country.
I’ve embraced the fact that life will continue to be unpredictable and therefore exciting. Rather than control it as so many try to do, it is important to flourish in it by being open to what life throws at you.
Chances don’t come on a silver-platter at the perfect time; they often require a lot of hard work and dedication for even the slightest opportunity.
