I was born in California, but have lived in Sweden since 1975, working at Radio Sweden.
I spent many years writing and presenting our program for shortwave listeners, “Sweden Calling DXers”. With the gradual phase-out of shortwave in favor of the Internet, I’ve since moved on to being our webmaster. My big claim to web fame has been that I was the first person in Sweden to post a radio program on the Internet, in 1994…the first person in Europe to post a radio program in English.
In August 2011 I took a leave of absence from Radio Sweden to move to Strasbourg in France. Sweden is a lot different from the United States, but France is even more so….
I posted quite a bit during the year in France. Afterward returning to Sweden, I retired from Radio Sweden, after almost 40 years, in August 2014. The following month I returned to academia, and began studying Egyptology at Uppsala University. I received a Fil.kand. (B.A.) in June 2016. Since then I have continued my studies at Uppsala, in Archaeology, and continue to work occasionally at Radio Sweden.
