About me

Originally coming from Helsinki, Finland, I live since year 2012 with my wife in Halblech near Füssen, southern Germany. I work 20 hours a week in the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre in Garching near Munich as a system administrator. Additionally I offer my services privately as an IT consultant and as a tour guide. I prefer this combination over having a single full-time job.

After receiving my Master's degree in Computer Science at Helsinki University of Technology in 2004, I worked for nine years at the CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd., the leading computing and data center in Finland. My major projects included the installation, maintenance and support of large high performance computing and storage systems as well as planning the architecture and processes of the digital preservation of national cultural heritage and research datasets. In addition to my work, I participated in non-profit organizations helping them with their IT systems and co-organizing computing related events to members and general public.

Cultures and languages are one of my passions. In addition to my native language Finnish I speak fluent English, German and French as well as some Japanese, Spanish and Swedish. Therefore I'm happy to work in international, multilingual environments and prefer to meet my customers and colleagues live instead of seeing them as tiles in a video conference.

More information about my personal life is available on my private website.
