Born with a backwards heart physical condition and left outside a police station as a newborn, Freddie came to Sweden at 1.5 years of age after living at an orphanage. He was brought up in the Snowy North in the rough city Borlänge. After 10 months in the army and psychology studies, he left Sweden for the UK to study graphic design and later founded Snask with Magnus straight out of college.
Raised in the rough parts of Jakan outside Stockholm Magnus played ice hockey, painted joints on his walls at home, and worshipped Kurt Cobain. He found out that he was great at drawing so he studied graphic design, after that he realized he wasn't great at drawing but excellent at graphic design. He founded Snask with Freddie straight out of college.
Hailing from rural Åkersberga outside Stockholm he was brought up by three older sisters and quickly found himself behind a drumset playing rockn'roll. After a Swiss business school and career at a bank he joined Snask within 4 hours.
