About Alexander McHugh

Originally from Australia, but the pull of black metal, dragged me to the other side of the world - Stavanger, Norway! Having worked as an Identity and Access Management Consultant for Evry AS for the past 5 years, I'm particularly passionate about Identity Management and can normally be found hanging out in the various NetIQ IDM forums. When not working, Alex enjoys cooking (especially baking bread) and music (of all variants, but the more chaotic the better)
