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.
The visiting American magician gave me some American playing cards, which was very nice. On the same day, I also bought two stamps to send post cards to friends in Sapporo. The post office then gave me a chemical heating pad as a gift for buying stamps.
