Karin Persson

Hello you! *waves*
My name is Karin and I live in a small town in north Sweden. And no, we don’t have polar bears roaming the streets. A few reindeer maybe, but no polar bears. It’s amazing how many people actually ask me about that. :P

I share a tiny little house with my boyfriend Markus and our pets; a dog, a cat, and a snake.

Most of my time is wasted in front of the computer – partly because it’s my work tool (I’m a front-end web developer), partly because some of my biggest interests include playing games, poking around with my websites and just surfing aimlessly around the net.

As a counterweight to that sedentary part of my life, I also love being outdoors. I’m often found (or is lost a better word?) deep in the woods exploring the hidden corners of the world with my dog. Nature is my cure for just about everything, nothing heals heart and mind faster than a couple of hours surrounded by the sounds and smells of the forest.

When I’m not busy staring at a screen or wading through undergrowth I draw a lot, usually animal or fantasy motifs in pencil. I’m also a bookworm who tend to alternate between epic fantasy and cheesy chick lit. Truth is, I’ll read anything with letters on it.
The music I listen to is mostly rock and metal, ranging from 80′s hair metal to contemporary hard rock. If you saw my Spotify account, you’d probably think I’m a middle-aged man. :P
