Swedish Tech Consultant, an expat living and working in Latin America since 1999. Active in areas of Wireless Telecom, Wireless Networking and Software/System (Solaris, HP-UX & RHEL) installation, integration, upgrade, pre-release feature test, customer acceptance test, and project and implementation management.

I am also a husband and a father who enjoys SCUBA diving, trekking, alpine skiing, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère and Chardonnay, 4x4, trance and most electronic music (Eric Prydz/Pryda rules), photography (especially underwater), but I have never liked to write code (well, at least not after the university).
