He was educated at Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Spatial Planning where he gained detailed interest for urban planning, transport and sustainability. This led him to attend the Podcar conference in Uppsala 2008 and thereafter carry out his Master thesis on sustainability in Toronto, Canada, and the implementation of Personal Rapid Transit in the city structure. He is currently part of a municipal group that will arrange a PRT exhibition at Stockholm-Arlanda Airport in the end of September, 2011.
