Knowledge base

I’ve studied these topics in both personal and work relations:

Web technologies

Rust and Go

Since early 2024 I’ve been fortunate to program in Go and Rust. The webpage you are visiting now is written in Rust.






Personal interests

My main interest is programming, both in frontend and backend. I like to learn new things about API design, but also design principles regarding frontend development. I also like to take a walk, jog or go skiing. Whenever I can, I travel to meet new people and experience new places.
