Well, hello there!

My name is Elin. I'm originally an archaeologist, but after many years in the heritage field I decided to try out the modern world and ended up in the automotive industry working with aftermarket technology.

Quite a leap you might think, but that's what Gothenburg does to you!

During the day I work as a Software Release Manager but my spare time is all about heritage and preferably combinations of heritage and technology.

I also tweet about things I find interesting in heritage/tech as @virtualheritage.

Follow me there!


After having worked many years doing various jobs in the heritage field, me and my good friend Jenny Rosander decided to team up and start up Virtual Heritage, a company specialized in IT aimed towards the cultural heritage field. After a few years I decided I needed to move beyond the heritage field to learn more and today I work as a software release manager within automotive.

I still adore the heritage field, and try to stay updated and work within tech/heritage whenever I can!
