I love teaching and instructing people. Nothing delights me more than to see a person grasp a new thing after I have explained something clearly and patiently.

As a person I am honest and frank. I like to approach each person as an individual, and I usually get along well with old and young people alike.


Finnish native, proficient in grammar
English excellent (written), good (spoken)
Swedish elementary
Japanese passed level 4 Japanese language proficiency test (basics).
Hebrew biblical phrases and alphabet (beginner)

In general, I like to know a bit about many different languages.


I am an experienced programmer in a multitude of programming languages and a few microcontroller platforms, such as AVR, PIC, 6502, and Z80, and I have twenty years of experience of using relational databases such as MySQL in commercial products. I also enjoy reading source code, and take pride in being good at that.

Here is a concise list of keywords that define technologies that I work with regularly: C++, C, PHP, git, gcc, bash, BASIC, nasm, ffmpeg, clang, GNU, Linux, Debian, xterm, ca65, microcontroller, hex editor, x86, 6502, asm

Generally, I steer towards the lower-level programming concepts such as engines, converters and algorithms rather than high-level concepts such as user interface.



I devote much of my free time to developing and exploring software and software technologies. I am a hobbyist Linux hacker, as well as a Nao robot developer.

I'm a free software enthusiasist (as per Free Software Foundation definition of "free"). My website is full of online applications, source code and articles that can be used to examine my style. I also publish programming and gaming related videos at YouTube.
