Sebastian Lindstrom's Summary
Through his visual company vehicle, What Took You So Long?, Sebastian makes stunning and impactful films to move the world, delivers events that touch communities from within, and shares his experience freely and keenly. In constant transition, with plans to visit 150 countries by the end of 2015, Sebastian humbly welcomes you into the engine room of development; a never-ending conundrum of truth-searching and camel-milking.
Sebastian - with a recently discovered astigmatic eye - is trying to find the meaning of silence. Helping or hindering him is an Undergraduate Degree in International Business & Global Management and a Masters Degree in International Education in Complex Environments.
In a utopia of peace and tranquility, Sebastian wants to snowboard and ski in Kashmir and Iran once a month per-year, own a camel herd in Western Somalia, and confidently speak Levantine Arabic.
