I was hired by Link Data Security (Denmark) at age 16, and worked there for 7 years in

    software research and development. In 1997 I moved to The Netherlands and started

    Spinner Software. Spinner Software develops and releases shareware products.

I’m not your average kind of software developer. Where most software developers are

    very good in specific technical areas, I have a broad experience in developing

    applications for small and large businesses. My interests are in new technologies,

    research and development, project design and architecture, and product management.

I have tried projects ranging from highly technical solutions to simple windows

    applications, but always with the firm belief that the customer is right, and never forget

    that the end-users are the ones to use the software. I never develop a solution simply

    because it was the best technical solution, but always chooses the user’s point of view.

I’m a real team player. I’m very good at learning new technology, and does not stop

    thinking about a problem simply because the clock turns 5.

I have a unique perspective on new technology, and the ability to quickly adjust to a

    given situation. I’m easy to interact with, and have the ability to explain technical issues

    to non-technical people.
