Started playing golf when he was six years old, when his stepfather Ola Eliasson, then a European Tour professional, came into his family. Gained inspiration by following Eliasson on the course at tournaments and decided he wanted to emulate his stepfather, who remains his coach. Achieved that dream by turning professional in 2010 and started his career on the Nordic League. Victory in the 2010 Landskrona Masters helped earn him a Challenge Tour card for 2011, and he finished 86th in the Rankings, his best performance coming at the Norwegian Challenge, where he was tied sixth. Won the Qualifying School Second Stage at El Valle Golf Resort, before a consistent performance at the Final Stage gave him the 12th card. Had a promising start to 2012, making his first seven consecutive cuts, but struggled in the second half of the year and had to return to the Qualifying School, where he took the 23rd card to earn another bite of the cherry. A big fan of house music, particularly the band Swedish House Mafia.
