Summary

Since I started Snowcastle Games in Oslo in 2009, I had the pleasure of experiencing the start-up dream in all its exhilarating and terrifying glory. From working on Flash games in a musty loft, to slowly evolving into a fairly established indie developer releasing our dream-project on almost every platform imaginable. Throughout the years I've adapted to my increasing responsibilities as a creative lead and came to the comforting realisation of not having to do every little task myself.
Besides hovering around people's monitors, I actually prefer to spend my time designing or constructing cool virtual stuff.
