Working with web technologies ― I write software & design interfaces. While valuing independent entities, I like to look beyond my own field and find joy in design, from graphics to furniture, but also in architecture and fine art. I fancy the quiet, poetic, and tracker free web, sometimes reffered to as the ``slow web''.
Approaching software ― I like to take inspiration from the early days of computer science as well as in attitudes found in typography centered graphic design. To me, the joy in writing software is not always about exploring the latest tools, but finding patterns that help you stay independent of such and design more comprehensible solutions ― i.e. small and modular.
I have worked at vastly different companies and environments. From early-stage experimenting & prototyping to large-scale production applications. In the last few years I have almost solely worked in React & Graphql stacks.
I enjoy thinking around design-systems and have been part of building such from the ground-up with great influence from `styled-system'. Although I would pick a different toolset today, the thought process would be similar.
Just like websites, architecture is inherently public, and a concern to all of us. Fascinated by the brutalistic movement of the 50s and 60s, I enjoy exploring historical buildings whether in Oslo, or rest of the world.
In combination with film photography, another interest of mine, I often have a side-project going. Capturing moments without instant feedback is quite a refreshing feeling in todays fast-paced society.
