What do you do and why do you do it?

I work for a large travel and event agency in a global role, I really enjoy working in an international environment, traveling for work and meeting people from all over. I also do some work for a non profit organisation which transforms shipping containers into music and film studios for marginalized youth, which is such an awesome project!! When I'm not working I'm working out, listening to music, reading books and out in parks practicing parkour moves with my daughter - I'm a half time single mom to the worlds coolest 4 year old.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Stockholm. How do you spend it?

Spending time with all of my favorite Stockholmers!! I'd probably start with coffee at AB cafe, then go for a run around Årstaviken. After that a long brunch with friends at a place like Nytorget 6 or Greasy Spoon, at night I would likely end up having drinks with friends at Snottys and then ending the night at Trädgården or Häktet.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Hong Kong - I just love the vibe of the city, the combination of old/new, nature hikes/big city pulse, all the great food and bars. I was born there and have been visiting regularly all my life so guess I feel kind of at home there!
