Hi I’m Magnus. I’m from Stavanger, also known as the “oil capital” of Norway.

I am a keen golfer and also enjoy fly fishing, snowboarding and surfing.

I am the co-founder of WooThemes, the makers of WooCommerce, one of the fastest growing open source eCommerce platforms in the world.

WooThemes was founded in 2008, and is a leading supplier of WordPress themes and plugins. WooThemes was acquired by Automattic in 2015, where I continue to work with the WooTeam.

Before being acquired in 2015, Woo was a distrbuted team of 55 people, working remotely from over 16 countries, but now we’re over 400 people!

We are an active member of the WordPress community, and we’ve also hosted our first WooConference in San Francisco in 2014, focused on the growing WooCommerce community.
