Born in 1978 in the small village of Sågmyra in Falun county, Sweden grew up loving film. It all started when he at the age of 6 were allowed to stay up late to see Star Wars (the first one) on Swedish television - it blew his mind.
He was making all kind of minor projects from the age of 12 when he realized he could be making those movies himself untill he turned 18 and his life took another turn. Down by depression he had trouble finding the inspiration or motivation to make any films what so ever. After the battle with depression however, Johan started thinking film again - now as a screenwriter, If you ask him he cannot tell you how many unfinished scripts, and finnished ones, that lay in his desk drawer. Slowly ha started producing his own short film projects that slowly grew in scale and aim, winning prizes at local film festivals, and in 2008 he decided to make this hobby a fulltime thing, so he applied to the acclaimed filmproduction course at the www.aub.ac.uk. He got in and finnsihed his BA in 2012. In early 2011 the idea of making a feature length film came to life as he became a father, this were to be the beginning of I AM MY OWN.
