Some days it feels like I’m a part of a travelling circus, bouncing from one place to another, juggling various roles and responsibilities. I’ve been on the road for just over 13 years now. I’m not some digital nomad or wandering free spirit or life hacking digital disruptor. I’m a husband and a father who happens to have a skill set that is universally applicable.
Where I work we host all of our websites with WP Engine. They offer compelling hosting plans that do a lot of things right and at a good price. One of the main reasons I wanted to host our websites with them was because they manage the hosting.
This website has been a long time coming, to be honest. It has been a pet project now for a good 3 years. First with getting a grips on preprocessing and everything that entails. Then GIT, though that should have really come first. Followed by settling on a CMS that fit my workflow and not defaulting to Wordpress. I settled for Craft if you’re interested, the depth of customisation on the front and back end is amazing, plus writing templates in twig is a dream.
I work for a biotechnology company in very northern Norway looking after all of their graphic design and web development needs. It’s a fulfilling job as I do not have a scientific background and am constantly challenged to find new and interesting ways to interpret the data that is produced by our scientists.
Dusk started out as a way for me to wrap my head around the latest techniques for building websites. It is primarily a portfolio site but it is also much more, a little back story first.
