Curators of Sweden

Every week, a new person is @sweden. For seven days, she or he tweets about life in Sweden, love or work, sharing opinions and ideas along the way. Then, someone else does the same – but differently. Follow our country through our curators. Welcome to Sweden.

Know someone who might be interested? Nominate a future curator of Sweden.

is @sweden 2017-12-11 to 2017-12-18

I’m Austin – @outofthedark on Twitter/Instagram. I am a freelance tour manager and social media manager, mostly for bands and other artists, I own a small independent video production company and I’m a restaurant chef.

I moved to Göteborg (Gothenburg) in September of this year. Still trying to figure it out here in Sweden. I love Swedish and Norwegian music. Obsessively. I moved to Sweden to go to cool concerts in Göteborg and Oslo and to find a job. I’ve done one of those things! I volunteer as social media manager and artist liaison at @sofarsounds Gothenburg. I speak some Norwegian and some English.

In Vancouver I worked in TV and feature film production as a production assistant. I have lived all over Europe and North America, but I hope to make my permanent home in Göteborg, if I can find a full-time job! 😂

I have travelled extensively around the US, Canada, UK and Norway and I’m excited to get to know Sweden well. My passions are music, travel, great food, craft beer and IKEA meatballs. Expect a lot of tweets about that stuff.
