I’m a father of three sons, the oldest two being twins. I live with my kids and girlfriend in Norway. I’m in my mid-30s and find computers with Linux, electronics and home automation things pretty fascinating. I’m also a big fan of red wine, Whisky, and cigars.
Between work and family, there isn’t a lot of time left. I use it mostly in my home office/man-cave. A 10 m² (108 ft²) room in the basement, where I tinker with my homelab and electronics projects. I try to write about it.

Well… My home office, man cave, server room and electronics lab is in the basement — with thick concrete walls, and no windows. Kinda like a cave.
Here are some blogs that I have looked to for inspiration;
- Ctrl blog
- Michael Stapelberg
- Intermittent Technology
- Jeff Geerling’s Blog
- code is hosted on my local Gitea instance
- statically generated by Hugo; using a modified Hello Friend theme
- built with Drone
- hosted by AWS S3, CloudFront and Lambda
- DNS by AWS Route53
- search by Algolia
- videos encoded by Coconut and delivered with Bunny.net
- written in Vim with the help of snippets
I aim to keep it simple, clean, and uncluttered.
