I was born in Turku, Finland. My native language is Swedish, altough I learned Finnish in the school for eight years. After finishing the school I served in the Finnish Navy for about a year.
The language in the navy was Finnish.
After my military duty I went to Germany, Freiburg im Breisgau, to study Medicine. After a year in Freiburg I moved to Berne in Switzerland, where I continued my Medicine studies.
I practiced in a hospital in Frankfurt, Krankenhaus Sachsenhausen. At that time I discovered that Medicine after all was not for me.
I switched my studies to international law, studying in Berne and a year later in Hamburg.
After a year in Hamburg I went to London for a year to study English. Back in Hamburg I continued my international law studies. After a year in Hamburg I settled down in Uppsala in Sweden, where I began my law studies. After two years in Uppsala I moved to Stockholm where I finished my law studies. After my exam I got a position as trainee at a law firm in
New York. After six months in New York I was appointed assistant judge at Haparanda Circuit court. I stayed in Haparanda for two years and at the end of my session there, I got a job
as an assistant lawyer in a law firm in Stockholm. Four years later I absolved my Bar Exam and also became a partner in the law firm. Two years later I started a law firm of my own together with a collegue. After 39 years as a criminal defense lawyer I retired. Now I am writing and translating articles, documents and web sites. My languages are Swedish, Finnish, English and German.
