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.
Some out of town regulars in our magic bar were in town during the O-Bon holidays and they had brought a cute deck of cards with them. Before I had time to show up, they had been playing a card game were the loser takes a shot so long that one person was sleeping, waking up to go throw up in the toilet, and then sleeping again, on repeat for the rest of the night. Not so cute.
