How would you describe daily work at Sleep Cycle in three words?
Meaningful, inspirational, great-fun-every-day.
Top moment at Sleep Cycle?
I started at Sleep Cycle just as the Corona restrictions were lifted in Sweden and the company was in the middle of developing our first B2B initiative. To be able to return to the workplace and together deliver the first version of our Boot Camp to our first B2B customer was an awesome team moment. The strength of working together in real life really showed in that moment.
Favorite Sleep Cycle feature?
Please don’t kill me…but it is the Smart Snooze, when you just tap the nightstand…but hear me out. I just use it 1-2 times before I get up, feeling refreshed ;-)

What’s your favorite Sleep Cycle Benefit?
It must be the monthly massage you can get. Sleep Cycle helps you stay healthy and fit by encouraging you to exercise and recover in order to feel good.
What’s your hidden talents?
I think I surprised my colleagues during our latest company music quiz. I have a good ear for music played between 1980-2010.
Favorite quote and why?
What’s done is done. Learn from your mistakes instead of spending time dwelling in the past.
How do you prefer to spend a Saturday evening?
With friends and family, some American BBQ, and an IPA or a sour Ale. If it is football season, I would probably top it all with 90 minutes on the sofa. Go red devils!
