Ehhh, whatever.

I'm a co-founder and CPO at Metaplay, a new startup based in Helsinki, Finland.

We make the missing online tech that's been holding game development back for way too long.

Serious Business Since 1987

I’ve fiddled with everything that computes for as long as I can remember. Combine endless curiosity with a passion for interaction design and you get… well, mostly video games.

I’ve learned that I’m most comfortable here, in the intersection of all creative disciplines, because only from here can one find something truly interesting.
