I was born in 1965 in
I studied computer science in Kotka Institute of Technology, 1987-1990.
Then I worked for Nokia at Espoo in 1990-1991 as a R&D engineer.
Those days I already had some kind of need to 'see the world
and decided to join the Finnish UN (peacekeeping) troops. Then I served in
UNIFIL troops during years 1991-1992 at
position 9-1 (Headquarters of Finbatt) at Jabal Marun
in South Lebanon.
During my work in Lebanon I had holidays frequently in Israel, in
Diving in Eilat and other places. Another diving photo,
Webpages of pos 9-36 in Finnish.
1992 - 1997 I had worked for Nokia again, in Tampere as a programmer, developing software for NMT-900 mobile telephone exchanges.
The trip to Lebanon wasn't enough, so I left for the road again!
10 Jul 1997 ... 23 Oct 1999 on World Tour!
I like several kinds of music, mostly Rock & Roll, but also
other types of music. Finnish rock: Juice Leskinen,
to name a few. Mike Oldfield,
etc. Some evergreen too:
ABBA, Beatles, Rolling Stones, and also ethnic music sometimes.
