Jesper Gojal Krogsgaard me

Hi, I'm Jesper, an open-minded and adventurous lad from Denmark with a problem-solving, adaptive and imaginative mind. Work-wise I usually play the role of qa or engineering manager, developer, cloud-engineer or system architect.
I have lived and worked in Denmark, Spain, Poland, Fiji, New Zealand, UK, France, Malta and am probably not done moving my longboat around. Xanares was one of my first roleplaying characters and yes, I am a giant nerd. I love History, Sci-fi and Space, Middle Earth and some other Fantasy, and primarily RP/strategy games.

Stuff I'm doing at the moment
  • QA Manager in Streaming/Software and gaming event maker at TV 2 Denmark
  • Am arranging gaming and game development social meetups and events
  • Working on a slow-RTS 2D game in Unity where you play the slightly bloody but delightfully chaotic role of an Orc Warboss
