I started my interest in nature, biology and science as a kid, quickly learning English to gain access to more material. In my teens I got involved in nature conservation, the natural environment preservation movement, and ornithology, and was chairman of a local birding society in my district. As I moved on into computer sciences, I mixed my areas of interests to achieve better results in both areas. Now I am a much approved developer, project manager and test manager in the Norwegian IT industry, and am quickly becoming an alpaca knowledgeable expert as I continue to use both my areas of expertise. I am a farmer, a developer, an environmentalist, and hobby biologist.
