Chief Technical Architect within devices at Advania Knowledge Factory.

Biography

I've been doing device management since 2011 and started managing iOS devices. In 2013 I joined Microsofts as part of their Microsoft Academy for College Hires (MACH) as a Windows and Devices consultant. Being a fairly junior consultant in a world where Config Manager was king, I decided to focus on MS Intune instead since mobile device management is where I come from, so I've basically been working with MS Intune since 2013. 

I Left Microsoft in 2017 to become a Solution Architect for Workplace within a large Swedish corporation, that was transitioning into a more modern workplace at the time.

Joined Advania in 2019 and I'm now a part of their specialist unit Knowledge Factory where I'm the Chief Technical Architect for the device team.

I'm not a big VDI guy historically, I come from a more device management approach, but I really love the simplicity of Windows 365 and what it brings to the table!

Outside of work I really love golf and animals. My girlfriend and I (and our dog Aska) just bought a small horse farm where we will keep some Icelandic horses. I don't ride, but I really appreciate being around them. Living on a small farm also means that home renovations will become a big part of my life now as well!
