Senior Software Engineer at Epistemex which works with few but larger customer creating tailor made and specialized solutions.

Background

I started young with a VIC-20 in '82 using BASIC and 4 kb RAM, with only a manual and interest as help. Later I fell in love with the Amiga for ~10 years doing 68k assembler, demos, DSP, multimedia stuff. I started building web sites in '94 using the Amiga beta version of the Mosaic browser, as well as building support for low-level protocols for various RFCs (FTP, POP3, SMTP, ..) and hardware peripherals.

Starting early 90's I was sponsored with formal education in media/TV productions from "A-Z" (ie. camera, lighting, editing, recording, mixing, journalism, digital/analog etc.) with some pre-experience from the Amiga and DJing.

Current

Today I work with .Net and MySQL on back-end, but doing more and more JavaScript for front-end "only" incl. specializing in areas such as graphics and media, management systems and so forth. I have worked professionally for more than 20 years building business systems in most areas of ERP (logistics, inventory, sale points, accounting, integration, catalogs, special tools, project management, CRM etc. etc.).

Personal

I am married, live in America (which is a bit cultural different from my Scandinavian origin). I have two kids from a previous marriage, and three cats. I survived an gas explosion in a small room in early 2012 which left me a bit crisp (~45%), but all my stuff in ashes. I am recovered as good as 100% and was lucky enough not to burn off the face. I do carpenter work (furniture) as hobby as well as music and photography.

Some of my open-source projects to run in the browser:

psd-reader, canvas-to-tiff, audio-reader-js (IFF, AU/SUN, CAFF, AIFF etc), transformation-matrix and a particle system (see my GitHub account).

You'll find me for the most part in the tags below. I try to give in-depth answers, but I have also started to see a trend here on SO which seem to value quantity over quality. This will probably influence my activity level in the future.
