I’m a Danish man of 1981 vintage. I’m married to my lovely wife, Anne. Together, we have two adorable children: Ida-Sofie and Adam. Our non-Danish friends know Ida-Sofie as “Sophie”. We live in a suburban part of Aalborg in Denmark. It’s not anywhere near Copenhagen.
I share my name with a stack of other people, most notably some golfer, whose fan mail I’ve occasionally received. Yes, people found my e-mail address on my website (which IMNSHO doesn’t look very golfy) and sent me fan mail thinking I was a famous golfer.
Anyway, I’m a computer person. I spend a lot of time working on computer software, while hardware tends to bore me. I work on free software for a living and I enjoy that very much. I’m a core developer of Ubuntu, a fact that I’m quite proud of. I’ve previously worked on Ubuntu full time for Canonical for almost three years. I worked mostly on server things, specifically virtualisation and cloud computing. I prefer to write my code in C or Python, but if need be, I can do other languages as well. I enjoy solving interesting problems.
Since leaving Canonical, I helped start OpenStack and have been working on OpenStack or things relating to OpenStack since then for a couple of different companies (Rackspace, Nebula and Cisco). I now spend most of my time working for Reliance Industries as assistant VP of cloud computing.
I do contract work through my own company, Linux2Go. If you contract me to work for you, the invoice will read Linux2Go, but really, it’s just me.
