After graduating from Norway's Bergen College of Engineering in 1989, Stig spent the next fifteen years in the IT industry. The majority of his time was spent in telecommunications and network infrastructure business, both as a post-sales and pre-sales engineer. He's also worked in data security, systems management and related disciplines within professional IT. Over the last decade, Stig has been working full-time as a freelance technology writer, mainly on print media, as well as several web publications in Norway. Mostly he writes for business IT magazines, but sometimes turns his hand to more consumer-oriented articles.
