About me

My name is Morgan Waern Wickström. At the moment I’m studying at The Game Assembly – Stockholm, Sweden. Though I enjoy most aspects of programming games, I tend to focus on gameplay, tools and pipeline.

My background is in the hospitality business. I’ve been working in high end nightclubs and Michelin restaurants as a waiter, bartender, manager and sommelier for the past 11 years. Looking for a change in scenery and new opportunities to grow from, I decided to pursue my other passions in life; games and programming.

In my free time, I’m laid back, enjoy being outdoors, playing sports and spending time with friends. I love everything food and wine.

Higher Vocational education
January 2016 - January 2017

One year wine and beverage education sponsored by my previous employer resulting in a WSET Level 2 certification as a Sommelier.

After graduating high school I found employment in hospitality industry by chance. I ended up loving the high pace, teamwork and satisfaction of giving our guests a memorable experience. During those 11 years I’ve become excellent at working under high pressure and stress, learned valuable lessons on how to structure and promote good working environments as a manager, as well as the importance of discipline, attention to detail and good team dynamics.
