About me

I was born in Stockholm in 1985, though I grew up in Umeå in northern Sweden. I moved back to Stockholm in 2008 to join a company, after dropping out of univerity. My main virtues in life are minimalism, simplicity and living below my means. I love learning and trying new things, which is the main driving force behind my career.

Outside of work I spend a lot of time moving and working out to compensate for all the sedentary hours in front of the computer. My main sport is poledancing but I also love doing yoga and taking long walks.

My Professional Background

My story began around 1997 when I got my first PC with dialup internet. I quickly became enchanted by the web and it did not take long until I wanted to build my own homepage so that I could become a part of the web myself. Dialup was expensive I was only allowed to go online for a few hours every week. I spent that precious time online learning about HTML (and playing Flight Simulator 98!) and finding free hosts where I could publish my creations.

In 2003 my journey took a giant leap as I got DSL at home. This was a huge thing for me as I was suddenly able to go online as much as I wanted; I was no longer restricted by the cost or speed of dialup. Having 24/7 access to the internet meant I could spend more time on the social aspects of the internet. I eventually found a bunch of like-minded people on IRC and I started making friends online. Some of the people I got to know taught me about things like linux and running my own servers. They inspired me to build my own computer for the first time, a computer that became my first home server where I installed linux for the first time in my life and I learned how to setup my own web server among other things.
