I’m a China correspondent, based in Hong Kong. By looking beyond the daily news grind, I aim to find people and entrepreneurs, trends and social movements, that explain what’s really going on in the world’s second largest economy – and how it affects you. My stories are frequently published by media like the CNN, South China Morning Post, Nikkei Asian Review and Al Jazeera. I’m also a China stringer for Sweden’s leading business daily, Dagens Industri. For more than 15 years, I’ve covered news from a wide range of countries. During the 2008 financial crisis, I was stationed as foreign correspondent in London. I have an MBA from the University of Gothenburg in my native Sweden, and I’m author of an award-winning management book. Today, I spend my time traveling in China and neighboring countries, conducting interviews with presidents and peasants, entrepreneurs and migrant workers, triad members and government officials; all those who shape tomorrow’s China.
