My Resume

I have worked with around 100 websites. Only a few of them will be mentioned below.

Work Experience

1992 - Now

CEO/Owner - The Cat Musketeer/Aimasan

I started my company Aimasan (and then later my new company The Cat Musketeer) 1992 (even though it took a couple of years until I began to focus on the web) and have since then helped a lot of companies/organisations with their websites. But I have also been employed in many companies/organisations (described below).

I have developed/worked with many websites through my company or through my employments (probably around 100 websites).

Right now I am helping a few clients with their websites (EPiServer & Umbraco) and developing some own websites (for example one on Microsoft Azure with ASP.NET 5.0, Entity Framework 7 and MVC 6).

I am also helping EPiServer when they hire me as a Tech Trainer for educating their clients (editors, administrators and developers).

Also worked as a trainer for partners and customers.
