Who am I?
What do I do?
I’m a freelancing web designer and web developer currently based in Berlin, originally from Finland. Only fairly recently I discovered a passion for computer science, programming and web development, which is why you are reading this now.
Having started my journey with programming not too long ago, the progress I’ve made has been quicker than I ever expected.
How did it happen?
I first started learning how to code with Python, taking my first steps using free online resources. Before long I was spending all the evenings I could spare at my computer, hungry to learn more every day.
Soon I started to introduce myself to a few other programming languages and technologies, too, with a strong focus on web development and web design. I started learning WordPress and building all sorts of different projects for myself, finding inspiration pretty much everywhere I looked.
Before I knew it, I was creating professional websites – first simply for the fun of it and more recently for a living.
(techies need sunlight, too!)
These days I’m mostly focused on building beautiful websites for my clients and working on a few smaller personal projects. I constantly do my best to learn more in both back-end and front-end development. My weapons of choice are usually
When I’m not coding, I’m usually biking around Berlin, eating cake with friends, or learning languages – spoken ones that is.
Making computers do what I want is an extremely empowering and rewarding feeling. It’s also helped me to better understand this tech-filled world we all live in, let alone realise what kind of power is hidden behind all these technologies we use all the time.
