I am the first born child, son of Lillemor Svensson and Wilfredo Stephenson. I have five other sibilings. I grew up in Solna and went to school there until the age of nine. I auditioned and got into the Royal Swedish Ballet School and graduated in 1991 and later the same year was engaged by Royal Swedish Ballet. During my years at the ballet school I was interested in choreography and participated often in the schools workshops with choreographies.
I am sensitive and curious as a person which makes me interested in the essence and truth in people and work. I am ambitious but get my inspiration and strength from creating a playground of easyness, joy and exploration. To meet people and the actual meeting is a great inspiration for me.
