Most of the content on this page is much better seen on my LinkedIn profile, but I felt it was a good idea to have it listed here as well, albeit in a very condensed version. This page will in time also include more akademic writings, and also work very well in unison with the Portfolio, which goes more into detail with specific projects made throughout the years. References will, whenever possible, also be placed at the respectful places.
