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.
It is pear season in Japan now. Pears are called "Jonas" (more or less) in Japanese, so I feel compelled to try all the new products called that at least once. Our coop sells "Salt Pear Juice". Which was not great.
