Title: Accessibility and User Experience Expert

My role at Funka

I am an UX Designer and accessibility expert.

The driving force of the job

It is my strong conviction that all people in our society should be able to use digital services on equal terms. Therefore, it is important to help organisations and companies wanting to learn more about usability and how to create applications that are accessible to everyone.

Previous jobs

I have been working with digital communication and web development for many years. Both in the tourism industry, banking, at The Swedish Association of Hard of Hearing People and at the Swedish National Agency for Education. To me, a close dialogue with users, communication officers, IT departments and suppliers is a necessity and a success factor.

Personal

After living most of my life at Södermalm in the midst of Stockholm, I now live in Gustavsberg in the Stockholm archipelago with my partner and my two children. I enjoy staying close to the sea and forest, but also near thriving metropolitan areas where there are a wide range of art galleries, restaurants, design and fashion.
