Music was my first love, hence I’ve been into music and musicianship almost my entire life. My second love was writing, which I’ve been doing frequently since I was about seven or eight years old. When it comes to my education, I have a background in music- and sound production, as well as sound design, and I currently study to become a culinary chef in Grythyttan, Sweden.
All while I work with Fishmoose, a collection of short stories (Eternal Wanderers) as well as several music-projects. I don’t have a lot of spare time, no.
I am the only founding member of Fishmoose Interactive remaining with the company, considering that Fishmoose Interactive was, more or less a game-development collective prior to becoming a company.
Fun fact: When Alex first joined Fishmoose Interactive, about a year into our existence, the other team members, jokingly, called him ”Wazza kryptonite” (Wazza being my nickname at the time), since our opinions differed in almost every aspect. I find it somewhat ironic that it would be the two of us ending up creating games together.
