Life 🌈

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

So. Something about me.

I enjoy running, reading and writing. I enjoy gaming from time to time, but less than I used to. I tend to prefer RPGs and immersive sims, and I also like to play multiplayer games with my partner and friends.

I’m a huge Tolkien geek, and can likely talk forever about metaphysics of Arda and how exactly one should adapt the Silmarillion. Similarly my other media interest are mostly fantasy or science fiction. My personal notes are filled with details from my own worldbuilding.

If you know me, or want to connect for some other reason, feel free to shoot an email at the address above, it’s likely the easiest way to reach me.

Tech 💻

Ed is the standard text editor.

I enjoy messing around with *NIX-systems and terminals. I’m happiest when a problem can be solved with a few lines of script.

My actual work is generally about web development. And while my experience is mostly with frontend/backend coding, UX design is also something very important to me.

I’m most confident in my skills in Java and the JavaScript ecosystem (Html5 & Node). I also have experience in for example Python, C/C++ and Rust, though I haven’t had the opportunity to build anything larger with them yet.
