~ About ~
I'm 34 years old. I live in Agder, Norway with my 2 sons and the love of my life. I got my first computer at the age of 12. I got my Internet connection 2 years later where I connected quickly with like-minded people in networking, security and programming through IRC. This later advanced to building my own computers and learning how to write code.
Dedication and Focus
I like to dedicate the time needed to get things done properly when working on interesting projects. I don't copy and paste unknown code into my own, and I always validate input values to avoid unnecessary risks of malicious user manipulation. Testing, stability and general quality control is a very important part of any development process to me, before a release or update. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in more information and/or would like to offer work for your business as an employee or freelancer.
