What do you do and why do you do it?

I am having a co-working and showroom that calls Bliss Studio and it is located in the Marais. I wanted to open a creative and happy place where I could connect people and make magic events. I named it Bliss since it means the highest level of happiness, and I believe to create magic you need to be in the state of Bliss.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had and why was it so effing bad?

I don´t think I had a bad job in my life, I believe from every experience you have you learn something and your soul be richer. I had one job ones that was a bit hard, I put salad on chords in a greenhouse in 45 degree heat, it was a bit intense.

Were you born and raised in Paris? If not, where did you grow up and what brought you to Paris?

I am Swedish and was born in a small city in the south of Sweden. I moved to Paris because I really love France and I wanted to follow my dream and live my life. I think this country are so beautiful with the different nature. The light, the climate, the food, the wine and the beautiful boys are all better than in Sweden, this is some of my reasons why I live here.

What’s your current hood in Paris and what’s the best/worst thing about it?

I live in the 9th district in Paris, close to a street called rue des Martyres, this street is a food market street, and this aria feels like a small city. I know everyone in the aria and say Bonjour to them all every morning, and have some small conversations, it feels like a big family.

What kind of music do you listen to and what kind of music do you absolutely HATE?

I am listening to deep house or soft spirituel electro like I call it, music and dance makes me happy. I cant stand teckno music, its to brutal for me and I get dissy.
