Work History

Jan 2015Present

CTO and Co-Founder

WICE AS

In the prototyping phase I made the hardware, the firmware, the cloudware, the frontend and the apps. Since then I've been responsible for guiding two teams to help me get the proof of concept ready as a viable product.

System Architect

Attensi AS

As the first employee of this 3d simulation based training startup, I had to be in control and on top of everything from; Linux setup, SQL, backend, frontend and Unity 3d game programming. I remained the sole maintainer of our web portal, until I helped train my substitute during my last month of work.

The architecture I designed is still in use and still maintainable.

Student Supervisor

NITH (currently Westerdals) 

I oversaw, helped and graded 1st and 2nd year students with Java programming.

Education

20102011

Enterprise Systems Architecture (MSc courses passed, no thesis)

Brunel University London

I got in to a masters programme through NITH/Brunel but I had to choose where to invest my time. I never regretted the decision to start full time with Attensi AS, and I'm proud of the architecture that is in place at Attensi thanks - in part - to the knowledge from these courses.

20072010

Bachelor of Computer Science

NITH (currently Westerdals)

I attended the Game Programming class at NITH with an Artificial Intelligence major.

Summary

I am a techie, a musician and I love to cook. 

Professionally I'm a self going autodidact that is completely in love with technology. Ask me about languages, paradigms, design patterns, methodologies and symbiotic teams - the pillars of our trade. I'm sure we'll have a good chat.

I have worked with electronics -, hardware -, system -, software -, database -, game -, and interaction design.
