About MeI graduated from the University of Oregon with degrees in Sports Business, History, and Scandinavian Studies and then worked in marketing for a bank, a Swedish professional basketball team, and a company that sells environmentally-friendly baby products. Since then, I’ve earned my MA and PhD in Scandinavian Studies at UW-Madison and now work as the Community Curator of Nordic-American Folklore as part of the “Sustaining Scandinavian Folk Art in the Upper Midwest” project. I'm committed to the power of stories and culture to create and empower communities and individuals in various forms. No matter what I'm doing, I'm a humanist and an advocate for public folklore. I also love sour gummy worms, Bruce Springsteen, and teaching. Not necessarily in that order. For more about my work, checkout my website here: https://marcuscederstrom.wordpress.com/
