Shepherd of Random Numbers

I have an MSc in numerical mathematics from The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (

Currently I work as a consultant, but I am always looking for an interesting opportunity to make better use of my skills related to mathematics and generative algorithms.

Given the right opportunity I am willing to move pretty much anywhere.

If you would like to see some of my work, I recommend this illustrated essay on generative algorithms: It has loads of GIFs, so there is a good chance you will enjoy it!

I have also written some illustrated guides to generative art methods, the first one can be seen at

You can reach me at, or on twitter:
