Born in Norway, I consider myself a citizen of this world, and many others, such as Krynn, Middle earth and ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha. I spend a lot of time reading books (and comics), listening to music and playing role playing games, as well as many other games.

Professionally, I hold several industry certifications, and work at Norsk Helsenett. I am also a part time student at the Open University, where I’m pursuing a Bachelor of Science under their Open Degree program. I’ve been blogging since 2005, and converted my original blog to a technical blog in the beginning of 2008. In addition to this blog, I’ve got a personal blog and a gaming blog, as well as two I share with my absolutely amazing wife.

This Blog

I’ve been blogging on and off for many years now, since 2008 mostly on. While the blog was originally dedicated to all things technical I might someday need – and to a great extent still is justthat – it has also morphed into the space where I formulate ideas, contextualise concepts, and where I offer my insights into whatever I happen to write about on any given day.

A number of the posts on this blog have come in handy at least once, a few of them several times. This blog is partly where I dump (more or less) clever fixes, solutions and their like, and partly one of the ways I try to better myself as a writer. None of these posts are going to be the next GAN (Great American Novel), but I do try to keep things more narrative than strictly necessary.

Unlike many bloggers, I do not blog to gain a readership – though whatever readership I do have is certainly more than welcome to the party – nor to satisfy someone else. I blog for myself, and if my opinions have value beyond what value I see in them, then so much the better.

I have done my best to cover any and all information there is to cover in my privacy policy, which you can find here.
