They call me the King! - one day i will explain, but that requires a beer, an excuse & that you didn't hack core.
I run a 1 man army Drupal Shop called geek Röyale based on the corner of the red light district of Copenhagen.

Besides of having an ego the size of you cache tables, im a "frontend developer" (see im much more than just a themer ;) ) that have been in love with drupal since 4.7 I use my majority of time in the Drupal community to bitch & moan over the huge amount of markup & css that Drupal spits out in the themers face.
Hopefully my winning personality, and usual bribes of "Real Developers" will change this over the years to come.

I have a highly social gene, so when in not sitting all alone in front of my macbook, I really like to organize events & getting the Drupalistas together.
This have resulted in a ton of camps in copenhagen, an active force in getting the European community organized across the borders & a couple of Drupal Design Camps ... ooh and that small drupalCon in copenhagen 2010.

I got into the web the days after netscape 2.0 was just released, and havent looked back since.
Been working professional as a frontend developer since 1996, have been on some of the largest sites in denmark (and smallest)
Have been running my own shop since 2000 (yup when you guys crashed we started up)
Created geek Röyale in 2008 which is was defined as a custom theme shop, but these days were just building drupal websites.
... and awesome Drupal Tshirts, that i try to push at Drupal events - cause the geeks gotta look good

When im not living happily in my threesome drama of Photoshop, php & css. I enjoy Heavy metal (\m/), my english Bulldog, an occasional backstabbing boardgame, listening to my girlfriend telling me what i forgot & off course my awesome daughter whom haves her own hashtag ( & tshirt) #freyarocks
