Software engineer

I am a professional web-focused software engineer, and my career started as a hobby in the early 2000s when I found out about PC game modding, and HTML and CSS.

When I’m not working, I’m working (heh) on my own projects or helping out with other folks' open source projects. My open source stuff is available over at GitHub.

I mainly work with PHP, sometimes Rust, sometimes something else. Continuous integration and continuous deployment, devops methodologies, and automation are things that are close to my heart as well. I also know my way around servers and cloud providers.

Hobbyist music producer

On my free time I like to produce electronic music for my own pleasure. My style varies greatly, as does the quality. I hope you'll like it too.

Mechanical keyhoarder

I like mechanical keyboards. I have, like, a dozen.

Tactile switches, ANSI-layout, 60ish% form factor, and self-built is my favorite setup. Cherry profile is the best keycap profile.

Catch me over at Reddit or Geekhack. I also host mechanical keyboard meetups and co-founded a local community in Finland.

PC gamer

I've been playing PC games since I was a little kid in the 90s. I still play PC games. I'm a really casual gamer these days, but I do know how to kick your ass (or parts of it) in Unreal Tournament if need be.

Sometimes I've been thinking about making games, but nothing has come of it yet.

Once I made a game map for a game and won 500 bucks for it.
