Co-Founder of SENSEE AS

Summary

I am a techie and a musician.

Professionally I'm a self going autodidact that is passionately 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 and development.

Co-Founder

SENSEE 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 and SQL, backend to frontend and Unity 3d game programming. I remained the sole maintainer of our web portal, until I helped train my substitutes during my last month of work.

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

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.

There's usually a tool that's best for the job. I have no prestige in using any tool as a hammer for everything. Sometimes a needle is what you need.
