I was born in 1969 with an keen interest in most things that spind around technology. I am first and foremost a computer geek, working as an Technical Evangelist as well as developing home software projects inbetween. I also take a keen interest to photography, filmmaking, music and home theater. I used to own a dobermann however family and children made me pick a smaller breed, resulting in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
I live together with my wife Bergfrid. Together we have three beautiful children; Amalie , Adrian and Elinor.

It is funny how you can really get to know someone better just by learning the little things that make up who they are. Here is a small list that tell a little more about me, in keyword form:
colour : green music : rock, jazz, ballads, techno, acid, pop, etc, etc, etc movies : Mostly sci-fi stuff. (Occupational hazard) books : Not that often, aside from geek stuff: Tolkien, Anne McCaffrey's stories about Pern and Stephen Donaldson's chronicles about Thomas Covenant sports : None practiced, tennis and MMA(!) if they're on. heroes : My parents Bill Gates The nobody that became somebody Ansel Adams For the zone system Andy Warhol For "inventing" pop-art Freddie Mercury For breaking all the rules Bjarne Strousrup For C++ Ulf Uttersrud For his impressive teaching skills
Since I am mainly a computer geek, I needed a hobby, which has fallen down to a couple of useless things, such as being an audiophile, home-theater loving, dog owner. Well, the dog is really not that useless, she’s excellent as a guard dog, she can carry a ton of stuff when we’re hiking in the woods, and she pulls me around on the bicycle every now and then.
Since 1998, I’ve been involved in various forms of so-called mmo‘s (Everquest, Final Fantasy XI, and now most recently Lord of the Rings online). I’ve also tried Vanguard, Everquest II, GuildWars, Eve, The Silk road and World of Warcraft, but didn’t find appeal in any of them, mostly due to hardware requirements being ridiculous, or game graphics just looking too silly.
Even though I’m not even close to being a “gamer”, I do enjoy this type of games and have made many good friends in the real world as a consequence.
One thing that I’ve developed a knack for is taking pictures, lots of them! So much that I’ve already photographed two weddings, a christening, and a fair ton of other events. Chances are that you will probably get an eeger “yes! Sure!” by the mere mentioning of taking photography of something/someone.
…and there you have it 🙂
