After a few years as an analyst and employment in corporate finance, Kaj left to focus on writing novels. The first was published in 2011, sold well and placed on best-seller lists earning Kaj the title ”Sweden’s most successful indie publisher” by the publishing industry magazine. The second novel also sold well and resulted in Kaj winning first prize in Indie Book Awards Sweden 2014.

Time, stillness and reflection are the essence of Kaj’s photography. He has a keen eye for details, looking into the mysteries of our planet, searching for the essence of being.
