About Me


To find out what I'd like to do in my life :)


All about me? Hmm.. this'll be a bit tricky. Well. Let's make a list about some of my precious things.

Friends, gigs, good "old-style" dinners with interesting people, books, yoga (if i have time - what a paradox), photographs, walking around, parks, singing, cultural events, home, coffee, human rights, movies, new cultures/ways of living, debates (usually friendly ones;)), good wine, good company, good life.

elsewhere is that none of it has tried to contact us yet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've lived and experienced life. That's quite amazing, isn't it?

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I can teach Finnish habits for sure. And maybe some little things about international politics, development cooperation and moral philosophy. And possibly English and astanga yoga as well.

I'd like to learn whatever you want to teach me :)
