First of all, I want to direct your attention to the website itself. I taught myself some HTML and CSS, to complement my skills in development.
But you're here because you got a card with a name, an email-address, a phone-number and a 2d-barcode on it. It might be considered a bold strategy. I like bold strategies, because the pay-off outweigh the risks.
The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that's changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.

I've had an interest in technology all my life. Since my family got our first computer that interest has only grown. Many mistakes have been made along the way, computers re-installed and ruined yet again, but today I am the guy that friends and family turn to for IT-support.
Naturally, that landed me my current job, as an alarm-systems technician at Sweden's most popular alarm-systems provider, where I install and service alarm-systems tailored to the needs of the customer.
If I was to ask my friends and colleagues what they think about me, they would probably say something to the extent of "Professional", "Service-minded", "Sociable", "Honest" or "Thinks his puns are so funny". They would be dead-wrong on the last part.
I know I'm hilarious.
You want to know what I do in my spare time? I can link you to some of the things I've made:
These are some of the projects I've worked on, and still work on. Others include an energy-efficient gps-logger for Windows Phone 6.0, a website for a local business selling spices, and a whole heap of personal projects left unfinished.
Sometimes you have to realize that a project will not work the way initially intended.
In my spare time I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Currently I listen to a lot of Sci-fi, everything between classic authors such as Aldous Huxley and John Scalzi to more contemporary authors such as Dennis E. Taylor and Peter F. Hamilton.
If you feel that the writings above is not enough to paint you an accurate picture of who I am, or what I can offer as an employee, I would be delighted to tell you more over an interview! My contact information is on the card I gave you.
