I come from Finland-Swedish Hanko, but I was born in Stockholm, Sweden. I am one of the founding members of the HUNKS, but before we founded the HUNKS, I worked as a model, a doorman and a bodyguard.
Today, the security sector has shifted more to the performing side. In addition to the HUNKS, I have taken part in musicals, TV shows, films, and the modelling is still continuing. My next role is in Gladiators TV-show as a Terminator!
The last 14 years I´ve been working as a personal trainer.
Many have asked what makes me always return to the stage with the HUNKS after some other project. The answer is: love to this work and HUNKS’ fans! No matter on what other stages I have been on, nothing beats the HUNKS’ audience. Nowhere else you get that kind of joy and warmth almost on the verge of hysteria.
The third thing is definitely the friendship between the lads. Nothing can compete with this support group. During the 14 years, it has been an honour get to know these wonderful personalities and those guys are friends for life!
For us, every gig is a new experience, to be shared with friends and the best fans of the world. One cannot complain. See you at the gigs!
Five facts about me:
- My dream job was marine biologist (failed in mathematics when I applied for the biology study at the University).
- As a matter of fact, I am rather shy.
- When I was fifteen, I had a small aquarium fish company. I raised fish and plants, and I sold them to the aquarium stores.
- I love carrot cakes.
- I still love difficult women.
