My interest in computers, IT and technology in general started from a young age. I grew up in the northwestern part of Norway on an island called Averøy in Møre og Romsdal. When it came to activities to do outside of school, there was never too many options, the basics, soccer, boy scouts etc, which never quite hit the spot for me, although I tried – I settled with skateboarding for a while. 

I got my first actual computer in the 5/6 grade I believe – this soon became something of both an interest, passion and hobby, and of course – to my parent’s frustration – there was a lot of gaming involved as well (and internet costs – good’ol dial-up days). But as a young gamer there was also the need to “get to know” the hardware inside – again to the parent’s frustration – I soon found screwdrivers and started taking stuff apart, upgrading components and so on. 
This evolved to start building computers, keeping up with new products and changes, tweaking, hacking the OS for various needs in the process. This soon became what most of my time went into, and it came naturally for me to go this way for education also. Because I’d been doing so much of this from a young age, getting the education done came easily and I also thought my teachers a lot in the process. 

I got a job straight out from school at a local company and has been going at it ever since – though minus the gaming part. I have a real passion for technology and knowledge around it, today things are changing so quick it’s insane – but this also makes it a lot of fun, but also challenging.Working with technology as a consultant I find very interesting, and as a consultant I always give my straight opinion in the cases I’m involved in. This benefit both the employer and the client. I’m not interested in giving clients false belief in what is getting delivered – I believe honesty is the better way and makes room for a better cooperation with the clients.

I have specialized myself around RDS/mobility, especially Citrix solutions. I’m always looking for ways to make thing better, more effective, less administrative – but in the same time keep the focus on security and to keep customizability for the user’s workspace and keeping the IT control – I don’t like the crazy IT admin total lookdown idea. 

Of course, I also work with other things than this, Microsoft products in general, O/M365, Intune, Windows Autopilot (I love it), powershell, VMWare, infrastructure, getting into more cloud etc, and consider myself to have a broad area of knowledge, but also areas where I excel (Active Directory and Group policy, general structure, and seeing the “big picture” comes to mind. )

I use a lot of my free time to keep up with what is going on and new offerings coming – it’s the only way to keep up to date today. Sharing experience is also something I like and is the reason behind this website.  But of course, I cannot use all my time on work and IT. 

On the personal front I’m a dog owner, I like to stay outdoors and going out in nature or the mountains (Not very big fan of the cold and rain though).
I’m an honest, honorable and principled person (respect is earned - not given), and always enjoy a good conversation about interesting subjects.
I’m a movie, music, and concert lover – when it comes to music, I can admit it’s on the darker side – Norway is home to Norwegian Black Metal after all. 

Technology IT is an everchanging industry, and it’s never boring unless you want it to be!
