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.
One of my colleagues who also got promoted or at least changed over to a new contract of the same type as me made a bunch of new business cards. Apparently our titles are now 特任助教. This means something like "specially appointed assistant teacher".
