Krister comes from Sweden and lives for the nature and the ocean. As a sea captain he has travelled far and wide by boat. In 2015 he took his own sailing boat and sailed from Stockholm to Svalbard and circumnavigated the entire Spitsbergen. This journey made him realize that the arctic is magical and Svalbard is the perfect place to experience it.
Krister has tried a few different professions besides working at sea. For example working abroad for the Swedish army, as a saw man and forklift driver in a lumber yard and as a teacher at a marine school. Now Krister will be working at Isfjord Radio and he thinks that it will be fantastic to come back to one of the best places he knows, Svalbard.
