Who I am: A programmer with a passion for the web

For more than a decade, I've been working in the field of Web Development, with tasks ranging anywhere from creating Flash banners, to Flash applications, from static single-page campaigns, to large websites, to intelligent middleware applications, and everything in between and beyond.

To computers I converse fluently in a multitude of languages, my favourite by far being JavaScript. Oftentimes the conversation will also include HTML and CSS.

With humans I converse fluently in both spoken and written form in Swedish (my mother tongue), Finnish and English. I can also get by in German, as long as one isn't too picky about grammar.
