I completed high school (almen gymnasium 🇩🇰) in 2005. After taking a break, working some, spending half a year on a højskole playing jazz drums, I started Information Studies at the university in Århus in 2007. After 1.5-2 years I dropped out to be on TV doing my new(est) hobby, stand-up comedy, thinking I’d come back and finish the bachelor’s degree. I never did. Got my first full-time job programming in 2013.
When I was 12 (1998) my father brought home a pamphlet sized book about making websites with HTML. I wanted to make one because my 10-year-older cousin had showed me his and I thought it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. I spent the whole weekend making a website about… nothing? and I had the best time doing it. Found a few friends with the same interest in this weird medium. We’d keep redoing our own websites every month or few weeks even, always trying to one-up or just impress each other. At some point people started paying me money to make their websites.
That’s 23 years ago now and I just now realized that’s still mostly what I do. I just have more friends to show it to these days and the possibilities have expanded immensely.
