About me

I'm a Norwegian software developer with a passion for design. I currently live in Oslo where I work as the lead iOS developer for DNB. I have a lot of experience building software, both as a designer and as a software engineer. I love learning new things and I often build products on the side to experiment with new tools and languages.
