I'm 43, and I work as a product manager at Intel.
In the past I have worked at the Department of Electronics at Tampere University of Technology.
I graduated and got my Master's degree in October 2001 and I
defended my Doctor's thesis in 2009.
My area of research was
intelligent environments and
eHomes. I work with electronics, computer hardware and mobile systems, and this is rather closely related to my hobbies.
In my spare time I mess around with computers and other kinds of electronics
and hardware. Time permitting I also play badminton, tennis, fly drones, listen
to music, watch sci-fi or build
plastic models / wooden ships.
In 2001 I met a little girl called Pim, in Bangkok Thailand. After three years of long-range dating and travelling we finally
tied the knot in 2004.
Now we both live in Tampere in our little home.
In 2012 our family grew larger by a little boy baby,
In 2015 he got a little brother, Kent.
