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 turns out there is a Nordic Fair going on in one of our department stores here in Sapporo. I passed there and took a quick look around. There were furniture, kitchenware, clothes, decorative figurines, and much much more. I had a fun conversation with a woman who was selling Swedish mittens of the same type as the Swedish muffler that I was wearing.
