About me

The man behind the screen

Hi! I'm a professional full-stack web developer and a scrum master from Helsinki, Finland. I have a few years of experience in national projects under my belt and I enjoy solving problems and finding elegant solutions to complex issues.

I'm an analytical, innovative and a productive team player with a deep passion for technology. I'm always eager to improve my knowledge especially about anything related to web development. Most comfortable with Angular, Node.js and Java but also willing to learn new technologies.

When I'm not working I'm most likely either travelling around the world, watching NBA (go Mavericks) or photographing out in the nature. If you like wildlife photos you can check out some of my shots on my Instagram .
