About

Nerd Essentials is ostensibly my site for creating various forms of content. I’ve sort of lost count of the times I’ve promised to reboot the site, or update more frequently, so I’m done making those promises.

My name is Mikkel, but on the internet I go by Barl0we – it’s been my gamertag for years, and you can find me on pretty much anything under that name.

One of the few pictures of myself that I like.

I have a Master’s Degree in business communication. After almost a year and a half at a European children’s social media site, I’ve finally made the jump I wanted into the video game industry: I am currently doing influencer marketing for an independent game developer! More to come on this subject in the near future.One of these days, I’m going to find the energy and motivation to create compelling content of one kind or the other, on a semi-regular basis.

My not-a-resolution to-do list for 2020 is (in no particular order):

  • Create and upload a YouTube video
  • Try to learn using a tracker and release a chiptune-y track
  • Blog more on here
  • Keep a track of which games I complete all year, so I can do end-of-year thoughts on the games I’ve played
  • Read more books
