About Me

I'm a developer who has loved creating things digitally since the day I realized I could make my own website at a young age. Ever since then I've been into development. The first years, I did exclusively web development, but my interests and knowledge have expanded since then. Today, I've been doing development for over a decade and I'm still in love with it. I have a master in Computer Science and is currently working as an IT consultant at Netlight.

Teacher at KomTek

I created and taught a programming course for children with another person at KomTek (municipal technical school). The course was organized so that the children received a basic understanding of programming while still having fun in the process. It was fun and instructive to see the children's expression of epiphany when they figured out new things. The same epiphany I experienced when I started programming.
