My name is Svante Kvarnström and I
currently live in
where I work as a nurse. I often go by the
name sjk online. I am interested in a
wide variety of things and I enjoy learning new things whenever I get the
chance. The list of activities that intrigue me particularly includes:
- Sailing - I have a sailboat which I like to sail with my friends.
- Exercising - running, skiing, hiking, cycling and swimming to keep my body and
mind somewhat in shape. I recently purchased a used bicycle, a nice Trek, which one
can see me roam the streets of Stockholm with. Wroooom!
- Music - you can find me (trying to) play various musical instruments
including fiddle, five string banjo, guitar and wooden flute.
- Programming - although not to the extent as a couple of years ago,
I do, occasionally, enjoy solving computer problems by writing or modifying
software, mostly in Perl or C.
Most of the music I listen to can be categorised as folk music. I grew up
listening to Irish folk music which still is the kind of music I mostly play.
Swedish folk tunes have however caught my interest the last couple of years,
particularly those from Jämtland.
