About me

The man behind the screen

Hi! I'm a full-stack developer and a certified scrum master from Helsinki, Finland. I'm currently working for CGI Finland and I have a few years of experience from various projects for the Finnish central government under my belt. I enjoy solving problems and finding innovative solutions to everyday problems. I'm most comfortable with Angular, Java, Node.js and Nuxt.js but I'm also willing to learn new technologies.

Off the clock I'm an avid traveller, cold brew consumer, basketball enthusiast, a dad (with the jokes and the body) and a hobbyist photographer. If you like wildlife photos you can check out some of my shots on my Instagram.
