Personal background

I'm 33 years old (born '83). I have a master's degree in computer science from The University of Aarhus, Denmark.
I currently work as a manager in an IT company.

I create computer games from scratch as a hobby (without using a game engine). I have created the games AeroRally, Pacman 2, Pacman 3 and Pacman 4 that are quite cool ;-) (have a look at and click on games to find a free download).

I am currently running SETI on a:
4.2 GHz Intel Core i7-7700k Processor with 8 MB level2 cache and 32GB DDR4 3000 MHz RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU with 8 GB GDDR5X memory and 2560 parallel shader units.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Do I think extraterrestrial life exists? YES! I am absolutely positive. I find it hard to believe that among billions of stars with billions of planets around them, that we should be the only living beings. Actually I believe that we will probably find bacteria or proof that bacteria has been living on other planets/moons in our solar system! For example Mars or under the ice of Jupiter's moon Europa. I'm also pretty sure that intelligent life exists out there as well, all though not in our immediate neighborhood. I don't think we are going to find it very soon. They may be using communication technologies that are far more advanced than anything we would be able to intercept, but projects like SETI is our only way to at least TRY. And who knows...maybe they ARE using radio-technologies to communicate. It is this hope that makes me run SETI.
Also I think SETI needs our help. SETI receives no government funding and we all need to help. Don't count on your neighbor to help SETI - help SETI yourself by making a donation! I have donated several times myself :-)
