About me

I have worked 18 years in Nokia, inventing new ways to harness technology for learning. I have lived in Africa several years, working with local governments when implementing a mobile learning service for formal education. Now I am spending some free months while looking for a new job. Originally I come from countryside from Finland, we had a farm . i am used to farm work. I like travelling, experiencing new cultures. I live healthy life, I am sporty and enjoy being outside. I am single. I love Italy, I have lived there two times 3 months. Last time I spent 3 months in italy at the end of last year, when I was able to do distant work. During that time I was helping one farmer in their olive tree farm.


I am professional in mobile learning. I have a sabbatical year from work and would like to travel and do some concrete physical work. Earlier I spent 5 weeks in new Zealand and worked in a garden 2 weeks on that trip. I have also worked in olive tree farm in Italy few weeks.
