Welcome to martintoft.dk – my humble space on the Internet. It is a blog and it is about myself and the things I experience.

My name is Martin Toft and I am an IT professional living in Herning, Denmark. My current professional title is systems engineer at Clearhaus A/S. Like most people I have many interests, including but not limited to system administration, programming, house/home improvement, running, weight training, mountainbiking, cooking, coffee, hunting, metal music, selected TV series, detective books and cult films. I grew up in the small town Østerild in the rural area Thy in Northwestern Jutland. In 2003 I moved to Aalborg to study computer science at Aalborg University, which resulted in a M.Sc. in computer science and mathematics in 2009. In August 2013 I moved from Aalborg to Store Brøndum, where I bought a house. Store Brøndum is located approx 20 km south of the eastern part of Aalborg and can largely be considered countryside. In November 2014 I moved in with my girlfriend Kristina in an apartment in Herning.
