With his wife and two kids, he moved to Amsterdam from Seattle where he trained as an engineer, learnt to appreciate good coffee, ran marathons and played guitar in a band among other Seattle clichés. He studied computer science at Stanford University where he first read Arthur C. Clarke and realized technology and magic are one and the same.
