More than 18 years of experience with software development, over 30 years experience with life.

Located in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark.

I am the owner and co-founder of Bytefarmers.com, and it’s IT consulting and development company by the same name.

I have great experience with large IT solution projects, ranging from global corporate websites, portals, search & digital identity to telecom integration solutions, financial web services, mobile content aggregation and transaction systems, frameworks for enterprise class web application interfaces.

I have been building content management platforms since 1995, mainly based on Java and JavaScript architecture, with high focus on security, usability and extensibility.

Other than that I am always doing a dozen of personal projects, when I have some “spare” time.

Personal life goal(s):
Find ways to improve society by innovation, inspiration and education in the fields of information technology.
