My dream-job is to be a software developer in the field of mixed reality. For example; developing a controlled environment for psychologists, which can be used to treat people with social anxieties, or a program which would help optometrists identify visual impairments in very young children, or even a program which allows architects or construction workers to see a model overlay of their work and get a better understanding of the details of the job.

We used WPF for the look of our client program, MVC for the website, WCF for the communication between client, website and database and SignalR for keeping an open connection between players. Furthermore, we used Unity to create the game (link to the installer below), but sadly were not able to implement it into the client program due to the time limit for the project (4 weeks). The game supports LAN multiplayer up to 4 people.

C# & .NET – Intermediate
I have worked with various aspects of the C# language and the .Net framework in my 3rd semester project, MVC, WPF, WCF, and continue to improve upon these in my 4th semester using detailed courses from the Pluralsight.
Java – Intermediate
The first and second semester at UCN Computer Sciences were dedicated to learning how to program in Java. This enabled me to learn the basics of Java and apply them in both fictional and real-world scenarios.
Git – Intermediate
I am familiar and comfortable with using Git for version control. In the 1st and 2nd semester in UCN-CS we used Tortoise SVN, however GitHub was a lot easier to use especially with the extension for Visual Studio. Click here for my own GitHub profile and repositories.
SQL – Novice
Part of my CS course is working with data persistence and databases. The 3rd semester especially is a good example of integrating a database which is accessible from both the website and the dedicated client.
HTML & CSS – Novice
Self-taught HTML and CSS and have applied my knowledge to this website. I am currently using WordPress for this website and HTML and CSS to fill in the gaps and stylize it. At some point I wish to rebuild the website from the group up without WordPress, but for now I want to focus on my studies first.
Lua – Basic Knowledge
In my spare time I have working on a game for kids ages 6-12 for the gaming platform RoBlox. This includes learning how to use Lua to add custom game scripts for the game. The game is currently in early development stage, a link to the game will be provided in the future.
Other computer skills
Microsoft Office - Expert
Microsoft Visual Studio - Intermediate
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio - Novice
Eclipse - Novice
WordPress - Intermediate
In the near future
I want to learn how to work with Unity and create 2D and 3D games and environments. My 4th semester is structured in such a way that I will get a deep understanding of the software and how to properly use it.
“Vuforia is an Augmented Reality Software Development Kit for mobile devices that enables the creation of Augmented Reality applications. It uses Computer Vision technology to recognize and track planar images and simple 3D objects, such as boxes, in real-time.” (Wikipedia). Vuforia will enable me to build Augmented reality applications for the Microsoft HoloLens using Unity, C# & .NET.
Extra Curricular Activities
Global Growth Agents Programme
I have had the opportunity to join the Global Growth Agents (GGA) programme. The GGA programme is an initiative by the International House North Denmark that aims its focus towards linking the international students residing in the region. It is a 2-year programme that mixes experience and theory and focuses fully on preparing the students for the North Danish workplace. The programme aims to bring together a highly qualified international workforce and companies who are looking to fill skills shortages and increase their global profile through an internationalized workforce.
I am also a member of the Student Council at my education at UCN and I represent the students in my class. Anyone with any complaints, ideas or compliments can come to me and I will make sure their voice gets heard during the Student Council meetings which are hosted by the course management.
Tutor for new international students Computer Science
I am one of the main spokespersons for one of the international computer science classes in the 2018-2019 school year. This includes guiding the new class around campus, helping them find their way in Aalborg and being the main source of information for anything school related. Together with other tutors we organize larger events, the biggest and most successful of which was an on campus LAN-party with 50 participants!
Recent work experience
Tasks and responsibilities
Make sure all the books get returned to the proper place in the library
Am responsible for the overall look of the library and ensure it looks neat and tidy
Help students and teachers find the books they need, and help them with any other inquiries they may have.

Tasks and responsibilities
Processing incoming mail
Work with curator software OnView
Answer telephone and e-mails
Work with sensitive information/ confidentiality agreement.
During my time at this company I have become more assertive. The job not only involved answering phone calls and e-mails, but sometimes also involved make some difficult calls and ‘exerting pressure’ to ensure we or our clients got what we needed.
Tasks & responsibilities
Work according to strict rules and guidelines
Handle very precious and fragile books.
Work with sensitive information/ confidentiality agreement.
During my time at this company I learned to work under time pressure and to deliver expected results in due time. I learned to work on an hourly quota and follow instructions by the letter. The material I worked with was highly varied so almost every day has additional challenges and rules and guidelines to adhere to.

I enjoy gardening, though I do not have a garden right now, I try to create my own little garden on our balcony. I enjoy watching the flowers sprout and grow and enjoy their beauty.
If time permits I play board games with my friends around 2 or 3 times a week, my favourite ones are Clank!, Mystic Vale, Gloomhaven, Eldritch Horror and Mansions of Madness (2nd ed.).
When I need to relax I often find myself drawing a little something or colouring mandalas in one of those ‘adult colouring books’. It is very relaxing and therapeutic.
Now that I am living close to the water I can also take up fishing again, something I was taught by my grandfather many years ago. It’s just an amazing feeling just standing there by the water’s edge and just nothing but you and the water.
Of course like many of my peers I enjoy my fair share of computer gaming. Mainly on my PC, but I have a Nintendo Switch as well for some couch fun with friends.
