About Me

I'd rather not start writing, it may end up becoming a romance novel, but I guess I have to give a summary..

I'm a half South African, half Swede. I grew up in SA, moved to Sweden to study and work there. I ended up meeting my now wife in Sweden as she was an American tourist. Being that I was on my way back to SA for holiday, she followed me there. I took employment in Johannesburg and during our stay there we got engaged. We later got married on the USVI. After a dreadful visa application process, my wife could come back to SA. We then decided we are moving to Europe. Here I am now, my wife is still in SA awaiting yet another visa process, hopefully the last one of its kind.

My profession is Software Development I plan on retiring early and have thus taken a liking to entrepeneural endeavors relating to social apps which I'm working on in my spare time.

Other than that, I love meeting new people from different backgrounds, learning something new. Ofcourse, I am also interested in learning new languages, good films, nature and history.
