Hmm, I've never been much into self-analysis, I always end up sounding a bit pompous when I do that, so I try not to. The best way to describe myself is by describing what I do, it's all here to see. Mainly, I'm an artist, not a programmer, or more accurately, an artist who programs, eh? Art has been the dominant theme in my life as far back as I can remember. I've always been a tinkerer, and I like doing things with my hands, they're very good hands indeed, capable of all sorts of things. (Kind of ugly, though, but who cares?) My brain is my most favorite toy, it seems to works in ways other folks don't, why is that? Mostly it's just stubborness, I won't let a problem go until it's fixed, and I don't seem to mind skipping whole bunches of steps in the logical process. Ah well, look at the rest of the site, you tell *me* who I am, cool? Have fun, explore, learn, and take care!

I also know HTML inside out, for exactly the same reasons. Listen to this, I actually have *dreams* all in HTML, scary, that.
I'm an artist, and I'm a philosopher. I use tools, and I use them well. One of my biggest edges in this industry is my ability to learn new tools fast. One of the other is I never abandon a tool once it's proven useful; many of my coolest things come from using somewhat dated technology to create some pretty cool effects. I use my tools, and I like to bleed every drop of use out of them.
I've been a designer all my life, and have worked (on and off) at it for over twenty years now. In my life, I've been a warehouseman, a street peddler, an itinerant artist, a truck driver, an auctioneer, a comic book artist, a furniture designer, a screen printer, print designer, and, of course, a web designer. It's been a cool life so far, and I'm like it pretty well, I don't expect it to get boring anytime soon. Life is good.

NOTE! Hey, I'll be at Internet World '99 in New York from October 6th, 7th and 8th. Look for me there, eh? Ciao!
I grew up on the east coast, right outside of New York City, and after 30 years of traveling around ended up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where I remained for 10 years. It's a very cool city, lots of culture, good clubs, and a nifty high-tech environment. I spent the last couple of years there with VISI.com, Minnesota's biggest and best ISP, working as Creative Director. Unfortunately, it can be *too* cool, especially in the winters, with temperatures dropping to 25°F below zero; I must have been insane to stay there so long! SO, I moved to Sweden.
Ah well, I didn't just move here because of the weather; mainly I fell in love with a smart, pretty and talented Swedish girl named Malinelise, visit her website why don't you? Things have worked out well, both personally and career-wise. In order to move here, I had to find work, and I would have taken just about anything. Fortunately for me, I hooked up with an old established consulting firm named "CMA Comedia" that needed a good shot of cool, and I was just what the doctor ordered! They really are a big and very high-tech firm, even if their reputation was a bit... stodgy, and I've gotten to be involved in some of the biggest jobs in my career so far, all good things.
Malin and I have bought a flat here in the Östermalm region of Stockholm, right in the heart of things, and I'm pretty happy. Did I mention life is good? Life is good.

Yeesh, it's almost kind of depressing, finding out how many of my older links are no longer active, this is a tough place to do business we work in! Still, some of them like Frank Kasper CDRom and DocsOnline have been online since 1994, virtually unchanged. Of my current projects, only the Telia project currently reflects any of my work, the others will be showing some radical changes this summer, and Telia will also be undergoing some major work. Keep your eyes peeled, I'll add to this list as other older jobs occur to me, and as new jobs kick in, cool? Take care!

All of the coolest things I ever did for a client, I did here on this site first. When *I* get bored, I sit around and play with my website, this is my hobby first, and my job second. All of my interfaces are toys, but here's some of my favorites from over the years, every page I ever created is still here in this confusing place I call OZONE. Here goes...

OK, here's the entire contents of the FTP site...
