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.
Since Sapporo gets huge amounts of snow, we always have a White Christmas here. We also always work on Christmas, but you can enjoy the view through the window while you are waiting for your software to compile or something.
