Tina was brought up in and quickly became bored of the comfortable picturesque university town of Lund, Sweden. With nothing to look forward to but horse, homework and the promise of a pleasant grave in utopia suburbia, she would spend every night dreaming of living a life less ordinary.
One day Tina and her friend agreed that Lund was to small for people with big dreams, enough they decided and left. They were restless teenagers, eager to taste adventure so with a backpack each they hitch hiked their way to see the world. In 1995 Tina came to Ireland and got involved with a street theatre company. It was here that she was first introduced to circus. Tina was immediately hooked, and this passion for physical skills was to take her to Circomedia in Bristol. Since then she hasperformed nationally and internationally from fields in Sligo to deserts in Australia.
