I am a level headed bloke, a half-nerd, maybe a little bit more than half nerd, with a strong passion for technology in various forms.
In the past decades I’ve had both challenging and interesting jobs, nationally as well as internationally. It’s been a privilege to work for and with lots of insightful, talented people from all over the world. These experiences have taught me things I value highly.
I have background as IT Systems Engineer, working on platforms from IBM, IBM/Lotus, Microsoft, plus various Open Source ones.
Since the dawn of internet focus has also been web services and platforms, web applications, search optimization and content management systems.
Hobbies & leisure
2015 I returned to motorcycle riding after 32 odd years of absence. It’s been an absolute blast! During the 3 (to date) last summers I’ve crisscrossed Europe and Scandinavia. Coming years will bring more adventure. Riding about yields a combination of several passions, taking pictures, experience new things, meet new people, and write about it.
Being a hobby musician I play quite a bit, music is a key passion. Of late it’s more in a resurrection state, hope to record new stuff one day and play with other people. Time will show. Else I do graphics, web design, love photography, not very good at latter but Photoshop comes to my rescue every time.
What else is there
I live in Oslo/Norway, close to mother nature. Which means easy access to woods and lakes, by foot or bicycle. In winter I do cross-country skiing, a favorite outdoor winter activity. Staying reasonably fit I believe is a necessity for harmony and balance in life. But all things in sensible dosages. There’s a fine line between just enough and too much.
Love to read, especially good stories whether from real life or pure fantasy. As for other hobbies I tinker with photography quite a bit, something this site hopefully reflects a bit of. Also work with/make music, latter in a “reboot process” this year. I’ve written music for film/TV, Theater, Radio/TV commercials and web presentations. But it’s been a while.
