I'm a software engineer, husband, dad, and guitarist; based in the north east of England. I read a lot of sci-fi & fantasy books, hack my Emacs config, and occasionally update this site.
I'm originally from the west coast of Norway. I studied electronics, and served as a sonar operator on a submarine during compulsory military service, before moving to London to study AI. I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2003, and have been working primarily as a backend software engineer since.
I started writing the popular SBJson JSON parser/generator for Objective-C in 2007, and have maintained it ever since. It's now in its 5th major version and have over 3800 stars on GitHub.
About this website
I build this website in Emacs' Org mode, which can publish static HTML files. Those I deploy on Amazon S3 behind a CloudFront distribution and a free SSL certificate.
Code examples are by me, unless otherwise specified, and available under the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license.
If you want to contact me about one of my software projects I ask that you do so by filing an issue on GitHub.
Otherwise the best way of contacting me is via email. I used to give my email address here, but in a (most likely futile) attempt to limit spam I've removed it. Don't worry: I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.
