My Bio
I have a degree in metal arts, as well as environmental sciences. I also studied historical crafts for two years in a private school.

I ran a workshop for unemployed young people for two and half years, then quit my job and lived for a year in a very beautiful place in the countryside doing gardening and music. Now back in the city, seeing if I can get back to metalworking...

I am interested in traditional, cheap, low-tech, do-it-yourself crafts techniques, and am inspired by beautiful and wonderful things. I like to build acoustic instruments from scrap materials as a hobby, and have been producing electronic music for around a decade and a half, travelling all over.

I love adventures and beautiful things, and plan to find ever more of them :)

The year in the countryside was fun but intense. So we got lonely, the experiment outlived it's usefulness and now we're back in city, living with our friends in a quite lovely old wooden house on the outskirts of the capital area. I was mostly gardening and making music, so not a lot of progress in the crafts. I want to do more metalworking soon though, so let's hope there will be updates :)

It's a long time since I was last so content with my life. I quit my job, and am now moving to the countryside with my girlfriend. We found a beautiful 1900th century house on a hill overlooking a lake, and altough the Finnish countryside can be somehow bleak sometimes, I hope this turns out to be one of the good dreams. First I just want to breathe a bit, and then start to look for a workshop. I don't have any plans, but a thousand ideas instead :) Take the second start from the left, and go straight on 'til morning, or how was it?
