Hi, I'mHej, jeg er Joe

You're probably looking for one of the following:

My professional details and CV

A collection of projects that I've made

Some thoughts that have congealed into text

A little about me and the things I do

If not, here's some other places you can find me:

More of my work can be found GitHub or Gitea

I'm on LinkedIn, where you can connect with me

A picture of me

Things I do professionally

I've been writing code since 2010 when I got my first laptop from school. Since then, I've taught myself a lot, learned a lot from professional application, and taken four years of university in software development. I especially enjoy working with startups in the early stages of development, where the quick pace means frequency opportunities for big improvements.

How I spend my free time

Like most people, I like experiencing variety through travel, food, music, and film, especially together with my wife, Ida.

A lot of my time is spent with my dog, Moxie. I'm fortunate to live near fields where she can chase balls, and lakes where we can swim.

I enjoy playing strategy games, primarily chess and grand strategy. If you're going to the next PDXCon, I'll probably see you there!

My primary creative outlet is tinkering with code. You can see some of my projects on this website. I like to relate my projects with whatever I'm most interested at the moment, which results in a diverse and unpolished set of results. Interacting with a broad spectrum of fields is intellectually rewarding, and gives a solid advantage in trivia contests.

Other than that, I fill my time with podcasts, D&D, and playing the banjo.

Where I am in the world

I've lived near Copenhagen since 2016. Before that, I lived in New Mexico and Maine, in the good ol' US of A.

I build solutions with software across all parts of the stack.

Jeg bygger løsninger med software på tværs af hele stack'en.

Programming has been my passion since elementary school, and over the years, it has been a hobby, an education, a volunteer opportunity, and a career. I believe that a skillful developer learns the best tool for each job, and approaches everything as a puzzle to be solved. I believe that a good team is the foundation of a strong software stack, and that communication is the key to collaboration. Software development is the means through which I do what I love most: bringing new ideas into the world.

Programmering har været min passion siden folkeskolen, og gennem årene har det været min hobby, min uddannelse, mit frivilligjob og min karriere. Jeg mener, at en dygtig udvikler lærer at benytte det bedste værktøj til hver opgave og tackler ethvert problem som et puslespil, der skal løses. For mig er et godt hold fundamentet for en stærk stack, og kommunikation nøglen til samarbejde. Softwareudvikling er midlet til at gøre det, jeg elsker allermest: at give nye idéer liv.
