Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
We also went to IKEA. Now IKEA has a few stores in Japan too, but the closest one to Sapporo would be in Tokyo... which is very far away. All my Japanese guests to Sweden so far have enjoyed IKEA, which is a bit weird to Swedish people. It is just a store with cheap furniture... but for foreigners it is apparently a place you can spend hours and hours in.
