Curriculum Vitae

Introduction

Living north of Copenhagen with my wife and my daughter.

Lifetime learner and polyglot software craftsman with a great love for physical training, music and nature.

A long experience implementing and teaching agile methodologies and principles.

With over 19 years of experience on software development, I span a variety of different technologies, paradigms and programming languages.

I have had many roles within and outside IT, such as developer, coach, teacher, architect, project manager, scrum master, product owner and team lead

As I still do software development, I keep up with new technologies and therefore thrive in environments and cultures who value competences, innovation and creativity.
