Hi, I'm

About

I work at LogMeIn building GoToMeeting, remote conference software allowing you to have meetings from your sofa.

I'm from Denmark, now living in San Francisco.

I like traveling and taking a lot of photos.

I made a game, Regex Crossword, that lets you to solve crossword puzzles with regular expressions. How cool is that.

I write blog articles to remember things.

Photos

Taking photos has taken me to some incredible places and outside of my normal comfort zone.

I've met interesting and wonderful people and it's provided me a different perspective on life and an incentive to keep exploring the world around me.
