Joakim was born in November 1946 in Stockholm, and got interested by nature in an early age.
Perhaps it was because his grandfather was a boat builder on the Dal River fisherman and his Grandma was magic knowledgeable and had a divine laughter? He worked with many of his own and joint projects in the creative 60's in Stockholm, where film, music and art flowed together in "happenings." Among other things he recorded some live gigs with Träd, Gräs och Stenar (the "Festen På Gärdet" CD). He later moved from the city to the nature in Jämtland in the middle of Sweden.
