    Summary Ever since I can remember technology has been an important part of my life, this has taken me from founding my own small technology company back in Sweden to working on projects all over the world. This same focus on technology also allows me to have a broad understanding of how technology is evolving and it has given me the ability to widen my knowledge which is now spread across several different kinds of technological areas. References will be provided upon request. Specialities I am an experienced developer within the mobile sphere having built both back office software as well as fully fledged content delivery and billing solutions for some of the biggest carriers in the world. Ive had several titles in top lists in the apple appstore and on carriers across the world. While mobile has been my main focus the last couple of years my base lies in web where I have developed solutions to allow companies of all sizes to have a presence on the web. I’ve built systems and websites for everything from small local companies to big global companies. For the last couple of years my focus on web has been towards Ruby on rails using a BDD philosophy having finished both big and small sized projects by successfully leveraging cucumber acceptance tests and story writing as well as unit tests based around rspec. While being a partner in different businesses I have also gathered skills in business planning and management.

    I am an extremely skilled, motivated, and highly knowledgeable IT professional with 15+ years in the IT industry. I am also an EC Council Certified Ethical Hacker, and in addition to security services, I provide a vast array of technical solutions to both businesses and individuals. From network/server/workstation planning and implementation to advanced troubleshooting and traffic analysis, I am THE answer to your technical demands. Add to this the fact that technology isn't just my profession; it's my passion, and you will discover why my clients have been with me for years and wouldn't consider switching. I absorb and become well-versed at any issue thrown my way, and will get to the bottom of whatever roadblock I encounter. Who I am not: your average neighborhood tech geek, a rep from a fly-by-night shop, or someone sending proposals to any listing that appears. I choose my applications very carefully, and make sure I have budgeted enough time to complete the task required. I also do not apply for jobs that I'm not 100% certain I can handle. Due to these and many other reasons, I have built a solid name for myself locally, and will do so here as well. You'll be glad you chose to have done business with me, and I look forward to meeting your technological challenges head-on.
