Get to know me.

Valter Andersson

This is always the most difficult part in a job application or portfolio. What can i tell you about myself that matters and you might find valuable, without me sounding like a complete self-obsessed douchebag?

I am a very relaxed person, i don't usually make a fuss about small things and i try to take life one day at a time. I take my job, hobbies and activities seriously, i like to be good at whatever i am doing and want to look at the end-results with pride. I like to think of myself as somewhat visually talented and by glancing at something defining in my own mind how something should look like or function.

I am a very sarcastic nature but overall a true optimist walking through this jungle of life with blue eyes filled with child-like aspiration.
