Practical Electronics Made Simple

I was born in Lillehammer, Norway in 1984, and I am currently living in Oslo, Norway.

My interest in electronic circuits started when I was around 14 years old. One day I started thinking about how you could make a light blink. The curiosity started to grow in me and I just had to figure it out. In such a situation it was good to have a father with electronics experience.

And that’s how my journey in electronics began. Throughout my teens I kept trying to build stuff. I remember going to the library on Saturdays and just read lots of books on electronics. 

It wasn’t long before I discovered that I could find schematics online. That was just amazing! Suddenly it was possible to build all kinds of cool stuff.

I went on to study electronics and computer science at the University of Oslo from 2004. I learned lots of theory, but there was almost no practical work. It wasn’t until my third year that I actually got to build a real circuit without using a breadboard!

After I finished my Master’s degree in Microelectronics I started an electronics company where I served as the CEO for three years before I decided that it was not what I wanted to do.

During that time I learned a lot about how to solder, how to debug a circuit, how to get circuit boards made and lots of other hands-on experience of building electronic circuits on a budget.

Now I am dedicated to teach the world how to build electronic circuits. My aim is to teach practical skills in the simplest possible way.
