Read on…. here are some questions I got here to answer…
What are you studying and what are your career aspirations?
At the end of 2014 I graduated from the Bachelor of Science from The University of Melbourne, with a major in Human Physiology. Along with my core physiology subjects I took numerous nutrition and public-health based subjects, which on account of my keen interest in the area ended up being my most successful (I completed each of these subjects with a high distinction). After a 5-month trip overseas, I have now resumed study and am undertaking a Masters of Human Nutrition. The career opportunities from this course are so diverse that I have yet to decide exactly which direction I would like to pursue but I know I will find a career I love as I am whole-heartedly following my passion.
What inspired you to start this direction of study/occupation?
I have always been a keen student in the area of science and went through school thinking I would go into the field of medicine. But as I was exposed to more and more information through my undergraduate degree it honed my interest more specifically to the area of nutrition. I, probably as a result of both of my very active parents, have always had a keen interest in sport and living a healthy and active life and I think my area of study really complements this.
What are your passions and dreams and hobbies, etc. apart from your profession?
I love sport and have tried many different forms over the years, but at the moment my focus is on rowing and running. But in general, I enjoy any kind of movement and love to start most of my days this way. For me this time is an opportunity to focus on myself and almost functions as a morning meditation. Aside from this I love to make time for my friends and family and to keep busy with work and study. In the future I aspire to find a career that I love, always keep active, positive & healthy and have a family of my own that I can share it with.
Where are you from originally and how long have you been in Torquay?
I was born in Sweden but at only 4 months old moved to Australia with my Mum and Dad, where we lived for 7 years in Geelong West. After this we moved from Torquay and have lived here ever since. During my undergraduate degree my fiancee and I lived in a couple of apartments in the Melbourne CBD but came back down to Torquay most weekends. We found that we really enjoyed the balance of city life with the beach town of Torquay – we got the best of both worlds!
How would you describe an aspire Ultimate WELLBEING? (a person who has ultimate wellness)?
I think that this person has to be positive and avoid seeking out the negatives in life. They need to have respect for themselves and always try to treat others with kindness. I believe that you can have ultimate wellness regardless of if there are negative things going on in your life – you just need to be able to see the positives and feel content with who are are as a person.
What does wellness mean to you?
As I said above, I think wellness it about having the ability to always see a positive in life (regardless of the negative things that might be affecting you) and to appreciate yourself and all those around you.
What is your website and how can people get in contact with you?
You can find my website at or contact me via email –
What is your favourite quote/saying?
‘Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.’ (Hippocrates)
What is your favourite food?
This changes constantly with the season and my mood but I feel the happiest and most satisfied when I am eating nutritious food but not restricting myself if I feel like something more indulgent. I could never give up chocolate completely (nor would I want to).
Anything else you would like to share with us?
I am really looking forward to cooking for you on this retreat. You have already demonstrated that you are well on the way to achieving ultimate wellness by respecting your body and treating it to this incredible experience!
