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! I’ve crisscrossed Europe and Scandinavia, per 2019 probably around 30.000 kilometers. Coming years will bring more adventures. Riding about satisfies 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.
