Personal information

Year of birth:
Programming since: 1994
Consultant since: 2016

Problem solver with over 20 years experience in software development/verification where the work often has been combined with project/team-leading.

Curious and creative and enjoy the challenge in solving problems and finding ways to verify that a solution is robust and of good quality. Always trying to expand skills and knowledge (both in new and already known areas) and this also includes an interest in developing other people.

Good communication skills including active listening and believes that knowledge sharing is an important part of the daily work. Words mostly used by people describing me are honesty, flexibility (e.g. finding it very easy to quickly explore new technical areas) and courage (e.g. to challenge current ways).
