Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

About

I'm a self taught web developer from Sweden. Ever since I first surfed the web in '96 I've been absorbed by the Internet, but it wasn't until '04 that I started my professional career. I've written gazillions of lines of code since then, in a multitude of different languages. Sometimes for big international brands and sometimes for a good cause. But always with curiosity and a smile.

Do you also have something neat you want to build? Then I guess that it's me that you're looking for.

It's nice to meet you – drop me a line so we can get started!
