Imaginary Karin portrait

About Karin

My name is Karin and I live in a small town in north Sweden. I share a house with my husband Markus and our pets: a young labrador/hound mix named Runa and a cat named Maja.

Most of my time is spent in front of the computer. Partly because I earn my living as a front-end web developer, so it’s my work tool – and partly because some of my biggest interests include playing games, reading blogs, and just wandering aimlessly around the ‘Net.

Contradictory to all that screen time, I also love being outdoors. I’m lucky to live close to nature and am often found (is lost a better word?) deep in the woods, exploring the hidden corners of the world. Nature is my cure for just about everything, nothing heals the heart and mind faster than being surrounded by the sounds and smells of the forest.

When I’m not busy staring at a screen or wading through undergrowth I like to draw, usually animal or fantasy motifs.

I’m also a bookworm who tend to alternate between epic fantasy and cheesy chick lit. I’m not picky though. Truth is, I’ll read anything with letters on it.

The music I listen to is mostly rock and metal, but I like most alternative genres. I’m not picky here either, I’ll listen to almost anything at least once.
