Meet Memoto: Carl Törnström


What do you do at Narrative?
I’m writing my final thesis on how the Narrative Lifelogging Camera should/could reach the mass market.

What’s one thing we should know about you?
I once drove an ambulance to Mongolia.

What book have you recently finished, or are currently reading?
What Would Google Do?: Reverse-Engineering the Fastest Growing Company in the History of the World by Jeff Jarvis… darn, now I have to finish it.

What did you want to be as a child?
Skateboard pro

Best advice you have ever received:
The best one is not really advice but more of a hint. When I was doing my military service, a friend of mine mailed a package to my squad-room. The package contained three books, a university catalog and a refrigerator-magnet that said: “A book lover never goes to sleep alone.” I think this hint gave me the boost I needed to apply for Uni.

Favorite Quote:
“What we do in life echoes in eternity!” Russel Crowe, Gladiator

Moment you would like to relive:
First cab ride from the airport in Shanghai at the beginning of my exchange program; So much I thought I knew about the world, so much I though I knew about myself. I remember the warm feeling in my chest as I overlooked the city from the elevated highway. I was filled with excitement and expectation.
