I was born and grew up in the Gnosjö area, the well-known region of entrepreneurship in Småland in southern Sweden. My family holds a large transportation company, which was founded by my grandfather, expanded by my father, and is now managed by my brother.
I have been a passionate engineer for over 40 years. Beginning with photo and chemistry labs in my early teenage years, to electrical engineering at the university, and computer and program design as a professional.
Several times in my early career, I constructed large computer systems all by myself, including mechanics, electronics, and programs. When computers grew larger and complex, for long periods I managed programming groups in successful local companies, as well as in large worldwide corporations, such as Axis Communications, Ericsson, and Sony Ericsson.
I also manage my brother’s and my winery in Hungary, which nowadays is considered to be a quality breakthrough in Hungary’s dry white wine production.
I have always been an engineer in the front lines of technology, and although I am very fond of management matters, I have not jumped into a formal career to get more and more people under me. Neither am I an academic longing for a formal scientific career, presenting an impressive list of references to show my formal education. This book is more a collection of unique and creative ideas from long experience in combination with curiosity about theories in technical and methodology fields. To conclude, I am an artist in technology, loving to express myself.
