I'm a User Experience consultant who creates great websites and apps by using a mixture of lean research, strategy, UX Design and code.
I was born in in Finland, I grew up in my beloved England, and had a great time studying in Edinburgh.
I can be reserved, but I'm also the kid that did Monty Python's silly walk in Scouts when accepting a prize. Sometimes I'll surprise you.
I love live guitar music, greasy food, Scandinavian Design and play Tennis. I also have a family which keeps me busy.
I specialise in putting together the best possible User Interface Experiences. I have been a UI Developer, leading teams as the senior guy who puts it all together - advising visual designers, content writers, backend coders, stakeholders and project owners.
I have also been a User Interface Designer as part of my roles, which led me to be responsible for Information Architecture, Wireframing, Prototyping and User Testing.
I believe in outcomes, lean research, working fast, learning quickly, and not being tied to dogma, deliverables and ivory towers.
I love companies that actually expect to do User Testing, work in a lean/agile way, make more stuff than documents and have a UX culture.
It's a cliché, but it's all about the people. Straight talk and no rockstars.
I work best directly with clients, and in small multi-disciplinary teams.
I like places where I can grow and learn from working on interesting projects with talented people.
And Pub Fridays.
