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.
Today (December 24) is the biggest day of celebration in Sweden. You gather with your family, eat extreme amounts of very nice food, and get presents. In Japan, it is a normal working day, and I am of course at work doing my normal work things. At least the weather is nice, though.
