I was born in 1969 with a keen interest in most things that spin around technology. I am, first and foremost, a computer geek, working and evangelizing software projects. I am also keenly interested in 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 first and now a Norwegian Buhund.
I live together with my wife, Bergfrid. Together we have three beautiful children; Amalie, Adrian, and Elinor.

It is funny how you can get to know someone better by learning the little things that makeup who you are. Here is a small list that tells 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 to a couple of useless things, such as being an audiophile, home-theater geek, and dog owner. The dog is not meaningless; It’s excellent as a guard dog and can carry a ton of stuff when hiking in the woods.
Since 1998, I’ve been involved in various forms of so-called MMOs (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. Still, I didn’t find appeal in any of them, primarily due to ridiculous hardware requirements or game graphics just looking too silly.
Even though I’m not even close to being a “gamer,” I enjoy this type of game and have made many good friends in the real world.
One thing that I’ve developed a knack for is taking pictures, lots of them! So much so that I’ve already photographed two weddings, a christening, and a fair ton of other events. You will probably get an eager “Yes! Sure!” at the mere mention of photographing something/someone.
…and there you have it 🙂
