I’ve worked as a professional developer since 2007, (full time since 2008), before that I studied information technology and business related studies. I was born in Germany, but have spent most of my life in Vaasa, Finland. Lived in Stockholm for a couple of years, moved back over the pond to Helsinki in 2015 and then Espoo (2017), finally moving back to Vaasa in ’18, where I currently reside.
The first few years I worked at a small web production company called Devotia in Vasa, Finland. We mostly built sites surrounding web-communities where some of the products went on to become quite big.
In early 2012, me and my girlfriend, Paulina, decided that we wanted to mix things up a bit. I got a job offer from Bazooka, a digital web agency located in Stockholm, Sweden. We moved to Sweden during the summer of 2012 (and moved back to Finland in the spring of 2015). I got the opportunity to work with a lot of clients at Bazooka from small local-businesses to multinational corporations.
For those of you who are interested to know more about me professionally, here’s a link to my linkedin profile.
I picked up photography a few years ago, and I try to go out as often as possible to improve myself. A lot of my pictures go up on this blog, and I try to upload as much as possible to my flickr account, but admittedly, this is something I usually forget to do.
This blog started out as a personal project in 2010, I wanted to code something. It has since evolved, and not much of the original code has been kept. I moved the page over to WordPress in 2012, leaving the custom blog-engine behind.
When we packed our bags and moved to Sweden, I decided to start blogging more frequently, one post every week to be exact. Most of the posts in Journal are based from this decision and you can find them under the tag Weekly update (the weekly update projected ended 2016 after running for roughly 4 years).
