I am a 43 year old norwegian man with a kiwi wife. Currently living in Norway but moving to New Zealand in the end of august this year.
I have worked in various tech fields, having been a sound engineer and radio jock for 10 years, and working with web development since 1995.
The last 11 years I have been working with safety equipment (smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, alarm systems etc). My main focus areas were marketing and product development as well as being responsible for IT systems, web sites and ecommerce. The two safety companies I co-founded had a revenue of 6 million NZD last year.
Since 2011 I have been more or less fulltime freelancer developing WordPress sites for big and small clients. I have more than 50 WordPress sites that I take update and protect against hacking etc.
I am interested in tech in general, internet technology and services, and I am a gadget lover.
Mostly use Apple products for my own needs, but have been working with MS products and services for work since before I care to remember and its still at part of my day to day life.
Hobbies? When do I ever have time for that.. When I do have time photography is a big passion. And I am also a big movie lover and fond of good music and good Hi-fi systems. (Although, being a sound engineer I might not be the person to talk with about the superior sound quality of gold digital cables ;)
Hope I can contribute to helping people out here. Feel free to ask me about strange norwegian culture and tech.
