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 spent one week at Schloss Dagstuhl, and it rained every day. I had planned to go there with only shorts and t-shirts, since it was summer. Luckily, I checked the weather reports before going, and wore trousers instead. I did not miss my shorts during the whole week.
