OTHER TYPES OF EXPERIENCES FROM THIS USER

What am I doing in my spare time? In case you wonder, I guess I'm something of a sport nerd, not just IT stuff! Here are some favorite pastimes:
FAMILY MAN
The toughest management school on earth?
I have a family with three kids who are my pride and joy. Most of the time.
Skateboarding
All year round.
Outdoors in the summer, indoors in winter. I am also the initiator behind Bowlstock, a rock and skate festival/event in Stockholm every year, since 2015. www.bowlstock.se
Freeride Skiing
Every winter in deep pow.
I try to get away for at least one serious freeride ski trip/year. In 2016 I am going to Niseko in Japan, and it is not the first time I go skiing there. They have some of the largest snowfalls on earth there.
Student
Always learning new stuff
I read a lot, and have a focus on learning a few new things per day. I especially follow up on work related topics, but am generally curious about pretty much anything.
