about

I've been called as Full Stack Unicorn, and I think it's a very descriptive title since I have a strong skill set in Graphical Design and Full Stack Development. For the past five years, I've been fully working in the graphics design and web development, and within this time I've helped global companies, organizations and start-ups reach business goals with my designs and responsive websites. The most prior years I've been working in Nordic Business Forum as Design and Development Specialist which includes ongoing design, development, and maintenance of new and existing websites, e-commerce sites and our live stream platform. I also take care of designing almost all of our event materials for both print and digital for our events in Finland, Sweden, and Norway. Lately, I also got my Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration, and I wrote my master's thesis about the relationship of piracy and paid streaming services and also what factors influence in the adoption of paid streaming services.

I tried to compile a comprehensive resume to here where you can find information about what kind of education I have, where I've worked and where I 've volunteered. I have not listed every single programming language nor program I can use on my skills. On a daily basis, I use a good bunch of Adobe Creative Cloud programs and currently, I'm mostly developing sites on Wordpress and Woocommerce. I'm a real supporter of lifelong learning, and I'm continuously trying to learn new skills that could help me to grow professionally, for example lately I've learned to use Autocad and honing my skills to get Salesforce Administrator Certification some day. Since I'm also a Tech Geek, I'm moderating io-tech.fi discussion forum on my spare time, which is the busiest tech forum in Finland and Scandinavia with over 25 000 registered users and average daily post count of 5 000 posts.

education

In the 2000s I spent three years learning web and graphical design in the vocational college where I got my Media Assistant degree. Even though this degree is from the time when people used to talk about multimedia and nobody knew anything about responsive design, it provided the basics of the flash, web design, mobile services, 3D modeling, image editing, presentation technology, photography, video production, and audio production. After that, I studied a few years Information Technology, Industrial Management, and Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences, but then I found my true calling - Information Systems Science at the University of Jyväskylä. The degree in Information Systems is unique in Finland in combining Information Technology with Economic Sciences. The primary interest lies in the development and usage of information systems as part of an organization and business with the aim of understanding them holistically from the viewpoint of technology, the users and the effects of the usage of information systems. I got my Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration in 2018, and I wrote my master's thesis about the relationship of piracy and paid streaming services and also what factors influence in the adoption of paid streaming services.
