I love to Rollerblade. I am lucky enough to be able to commute to work via Rollerblades in the non-winter-seasons.

I have some background in Databases, love C++, templates, query-compilation, and also ventured for a little bit in programming GPUs.

The best way to contact me is to send an email to danREMOVETHISPARTielqzinn@gmANDTHISail.com.
