I build websites and campaigns for the biggest brands in Europe and in Finland by working mostly with digital and advertising agencies, as well with startups. I'm very experienced both at design and development.
I've done loads — my industry experience is extensive. I’m active open source contributor and visionary free/share-economics activist. I've won a couple of awards with my teams and I regularly give interviews about my projects.
Currently I'm concentrating mostly on consulting, startups and open source.
