Quick Bio

My name is Pelle Braendgaard and I current live in Managua the capital of Nicaragua. I was born in 1970 in North Carolina, but grew up in Denmark.

I speak English, Danish, Spanish and used to be fluent in German a long time ago.

My main interests are web technology, crypto, Bitcoin, Clojure, Ruby on Rails, startups, economics, libertarianism, travel, food, drink and music.

Being a chronic immigrant means that I have lived in and worked in a variety of different countries: The US, Denmark, England (and Wales), British Virgin Islands, Sint Maarten, Jamaica, Panama and now Nicaragua. I asume that when I eventually get called up by that great garbage collector in the sky, I will have added a bunch of other places on that list.

I like a broad range of music. People tend to tell me that my musical tastes are odd. I like Reggae (Jamaican and Panamanian), RnB, Hip Hop, House, Salsa, Merengue, Bossa Nova, Samba, Jazz, Electronica etc. I’m not particularly keen on rock, but I do make some exceptions.
