About Me


To live my life to the fullest!


I consider myself a kind, warm-hearted, open-minded and thoughtful person. If you would ask my family or friends, they would probably say I'm a caring and loyal guy to have around. I'm totally involved in the things that matter the most for me in life, meaning: self-development and groving as a human being, work, friends and the loved ones.


Do it or die trying!

"It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb."

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sunrise in Sahara. Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon in Iceland. Those all so wild midnight sun nights in my home country... Every moment is precious!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you all the cultural happenings, concerts and the night-life of a small Finnish town at it's best. I can also introduce you some of the historical sights around the city. If you wish, we can ice fish or ski (in the winter) and disc golf or play soccer (in the summer).
