My name is Daniel!

I´m currently working as a paintless dent repair technician (PDR) for Volvobil at their workshop, that is located at the Volvo Cars Torslanda factory.

At the same time, I am studying the surface design program at Yrgo.

My goal is to have a carrier in the surface modeling profession but also develop my design skills because its shapes and timeless design that I am burning for and help a designer bring that in to the world would be a dream job.

Areas that interests me extra is the Automotive industry, product industry and architect

I used to work in the automotive industry working as a dent repair man which was what I educated myself to in college.

After that I studied 3 years in Florence Italy where I lived.

After that time, I went home and worked for Volvo group at their truck factory.

​Before going into fashion again and studying and working, I worked at H&M and I was a design assistant at Lindex.

​After that time, I got introduced to the work of a PDR technician and the challenge of repairing a surface without damaging the paint. this was a fun challenge, but I felt that I wanted to be there when it was made, I wanted to be where the car was made.

​so, I applied to the surface design course at Yrgo and here we are full speed ahead and a lot of new challenges awaits.
