He has always kept the focus on creating great products with great user experiences, putting the user first. Einar is a Microsoft MVP awardee five years in a row, awarded for his work in the Silverlight space with projects such as Balder, a 3D engine for Silverlight. Today Einar runs a company called Dolittle with partners, doing consultancy and building their own products with their own open source projects at the heart of what they do ( Among the clients that Dolittle has been involved with for the last couple of years, include NRK (largest TV broadcaster in Norway), Statoil (Norwegian oil company), Komplett (largest e-commerce in Norway), and Holte (leading Norwegian developer for construction software).

                      Additionally, Einar loves doing talks at the user groups and conferences, and has been a frequent speaker at Microsoft venues talking about different topics, the last couple of years talking mostly about architecture, code quality, and cloud computing.
