I am 30 years old, currently living in Oslo, Norway, doing a masters degree in computing where the master project will be an implementation of the WirelessHART protocol on Atmel sensor nodes. My primary fields are system development, programming and networking.

Before I moved to Oslo I spent two years near Geneva, Switzerland on the French side of the border. Working as a Network Engineer in the Atlas TDAQ Networking Group which is part of the Atlas Experiment on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).

I also devote some time to working with the Joomla! Bug Squad and developing on the Joomla! Platform and CMS project. I have written some extensions for Joomla! that you will find on this site.

My general interests are computing and networking,  and in my spare time I enjoy photography, , playing my guitar, scuba diving, climbing, hiking and snowboarding.
