Born in San Francisco, Björklund has built a reputation for his irreverent vision and exceptional artistry. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Graphics/Experimental Animation from CalArts in 1982 and, two years later, graduated from the same renowned institution with a Master of Fine Arts degree.
He began his professional career as an animator/director for Colossal Pictures and Industrial Light & Magic, where he worked for nine years before becoming the writer/director on the first three seasons of Rocko's Modern Life for Nickelodeon. From 1994-1996, Björklund scored the creative hat trick as producer/writer/director first season of CBS' The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat.
Following that, he served a three-year stint as director of development for Ink Biscuits Studios, during which time he designed and directed the titles and bumpers for Cartoon Network's Late Night Black and White series, which earned an Annie Award in 1998.
Björklund arrived at Walt Disney Television Animation in 1999 to begin his affiliation with Disney's Teacher's Pet as the director on the series and, in 2001, the feature film.
