Something about me
I started studying at KTH
Applied Physics but after a while (including military
I found that my call was
Computing Science. While studying (almost) full-time I worked
the AutoCAD distributor Datech. Like many others I couldn't resist to
start working full-time and since then my studies have been part-time.
When Datech went bank-rupt I started taking consultant assignments.
Word got out about my abilities, so I've been given some quite

I just finished a contract for
Autodesk, Inc. in Petaluma, California, and now I'm a partner

still looking forward to completing my studies.
