Who would you like to work with?
Rihanna, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, of course! It would be fun to create something crazy with them for a show.
Hard at work.
What inspires you?
People who are driven and successful. I love talking to people who have “made it” and try to get into their minds.
My favorite type of music is…
I’m open to almost everything, but my sweet spot is 80’s and 90’s pop music.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
One of my goals as a professional dancer was to be a part of Eurovision Song Contest. It’s a huge music competition in Europe and the biggest TV show in Sweden. In 2011, I fulfilled a life long dream and was a dancer on the show. It was amazing!
My favorite movies are…
I love scary movies, like Paranormal Activity, and Disney movies, of course! Nothing beats The Lion King and Aladdin.

Martin, my precious pooch.

My dog, Martin.

A huge stuffed Minion at Universal Studios.
