Work status

Working as a System Developer with many of the security solutions at Telenor Norge ASA. The current focus is Mine Sider, internal architecture with SAML and Min Bedrift. Working mostly with J2ee, Spring, jax-rs/-ws, saml and similar technologies.

Interests

Personally I see myself as a big car enthusiast, but at the moment I'm driving a Toyota Yaris. In other words, many might put a questionmark behind that expression. I'm also a big fan of skiing, mb cycling, gaming and coding. In my not-working-hours I'm mostly either coding some stuff, or training - or relaxing (I know much about that topic). Heh!

Idols

John Carmack, Kent Beck, Linus Torvalds, Donald Faison, Zach Braff & Jeff Atwood
