What are your thoughts on the new TLDs? A very exciting opportunity to clarify and market your ideas online. Whether you are an established business or a start-up

Who would you like to hear speak at NamesCon? Why? Like to hear some foreseeing about both premium names under the older TLDs (will their value stand?) and new TLDs (will they steal market shares from i.e. .com?)

What are you most looking forward to at the upcoming NamesCon? The networking and finding potential buyers for Ticket.com. Looking forward to meet a lot of new and interesting people and share experience and learn a lot of new things.

What fact about you would surprise people? I'm an educated chef, a good one.

How would you describe what you do in a single sentence to a stranger? If you will have a digital presence, I am one of the first you should talk to.

If you had fifteen extra minutes each day, what would you do with them? Some reading and some prospecting.

Latest and greatest accomplishment in your career? We have the last year signed several large Nordic companies even though we still are a small player and triplet our growth from the first to the second year.

Describe a recent challenge, at work or personally, that you overcame. That as a new parent leave a secure and well-paid employment with a major global player to be part of creating something that I really believed in, our company.

Where is your favourite place to escape? My small cottage in the forest outside of Stockholm with my family.

What was the best advice you were ever given? "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."
